总部位于中国香港的国泰航空报告显示,其今年十一月份的货运量同比增长了11.2%,运输周转量达到了10.7亿吨公里。该成绩明显好过今年九月份(4.2%)以及十月份(7.5%)的同比增长数据,又回到了今年六至八月的两位数增长水平。今年的前十一个月,国泰航空货运量同比增长了8.9%,运输周转量达到了105.3亿吨公里。 关于今年取得的成绩,国泰航空商业及货运总监Ronald Lam表示:“国泰航空货运吨位数同比增长,反映了全球航空货运市场的整体实力。诸如中国“双十一”这样的重要事件,推动了整个电子商务的发展,并有力的缓解了感恩节后传统的航空货运需求下滑,航空公司从而在货运装载率以及货运利润等方面获益。自11月26日开始的那一周,打破了国泰航空周度货量的历史记录,同时,国泰航空货运网络一些主要市场还在本月创造了新的收入记录。航空货运市场的前景依然乐观,预计将持续到圣诞节。” 此外,国泰航空欧洲区域经理Ray Jewell表示:“航空公司普遍认为货运将持续增长直到明年第一季度。从订货到交货的时间在延长,客户正在努力寻找航空运力。托运人被警告航空运费可能会增加。航空公司喜闻乐见货运代理以更高的价格购买更长时间的航空舱位,以确保其货运业务得到保障。”
