It will be some time before all the cargo moved by air in 2016 is tallied, but when the numbers are finally published, it is likely that Emirates will, once again, be the world’s top international cargo carrier. The airline’s rise from a pair of airlines leased from nearby Pakistan a little over thirty years ago, to its position as the colossus of the skies today has been astounding.

Very interesting food for thought.
