ANA Cargo earthquake JAL


Japan’s All Nippon Airways said its international cargo volume rose for the 18th consecutive month in February on a year-on-year basis, increasing 11.3 per cent to 34,123 tonnes. Much of this gain has been a result of Japan Airlines¡¯ withdrawal from the cargo market. ANA’s domestic cargo volume fell for the first time in 15 months in February, slipping 0.1 per cent from a year earlier to 34,078 tonnes, and volumes down from a 1.6 per cent growth in January. Expectations are that the devastating earthquake and tsunami in early March will dampen subsequent cargo volumes.
