Germany’s Leipzig/Halle Airport is approaching a new record in freight volumes for its ninth year with 813,802 tonnes of cargo handled between January and November – an increase of 2.8 per cent over the same period a year earlier.

“The current figures once again underline the fact that Leipzig/Halle is the country’s largest express freight hub and is the growth engine in the airport world in Germany,” Markus Kopp, CEO of Mitteldeutsche Airport Holding, said. “With expected annual volumes of approximately 880,000 tonnes, the airport is continuing to consolidate its position as one of the most important air cargo transshipment centers in Europe. This positive development makes me optimistic about the development of business in 2014 too.”
