November a record month for Cargolux


November 2013 turned out to be a very good month for Cargolux with unprecedented tonnage and revenues making it the best month in the history of Cargolux. The airline carried over 74,000 tonnes of freight on its worldwide network, a 27 per cent increase compared to November 2012 and achieved revenues in excess of U$200 million.

Traffic on the airline’s European and Asian routes, especially Hong Kong, was particularly strong with Cargolux benefiting from the improvement in the global air cargo market that, according to the latest IATA figures, grew in all world regions with the exception of Africa. For October, IATA noted an FTK growth of four per cent year-on-year while freight volumes increased 1.3 per cent globally from September to October. In contrast, Cargolux achieved an FTK growth in excess of 15 per cent, compared to the previous October and this is expected to further improve with November’s figures.
