Air freight in Asia-Pacific experienced marginal growth of 2.6 per cent year-over-year for the month of April, reported Airports Council International (ACI). The slowing down in freight volumes reflected weaker demands from Europe and slowdown across Asian export markets. The Middle East sustained strong growth at 14.5 per cent due to expansion in both capacity and network. Among major cargo airports in the region, New Delhi (DEL) led Asia-Pacific with the highest growth rate at 19 per cent whereas Dubai (aggregate DXB & DWC) led the Middle East at 19.6 per cent for the month.
