Airports continue to disregard air cargo

Paris conference on air cargo handling highlights dynamic cargo processes at Schiphol and Brussels airport

Air Cargo Handling conference Brussels Airport Charles de Gaulle dynamic processes JFK London Heathrow Schiphol airport

The air cargo community comprising handlers and carriers blamed airports for taking little or no interest in cargo operations. At the Air Cargo Handling conference in Paris, air cargo stakeholders said that only Schiphol and Brussels airports had dynamic processes for cargo. Other airports, London Heathrow, Charles de Gaulle and JFK were branded “a disgrace”. This despite the fact that many flights passing through metropolitan airports were justified by airlines only on the basis on the volum of belly cargo.
