    Freight volumes at Leipzig/Halle Airport have grown for the 13th consecutive year passing 1.1 million tonnes and setting a monthly record in December.

    Europe’s fifth largest cargo hub and the second busiest in Germany handled 1,138,477 tonnes in 2017, an increase of 8.2 per cent, and a monthly record was broken in December when Leipzig handled 105,768 tonnes.

    “The growth is being particularly spurred on by the express freight business – but freight and special charter services are also developing in an above-average manner.”

    Turkish Cargo will use its recently delivered Boeing 777-200F on a new weekly route to Miami.

    The service will begin at Istanbul, departing on Sundays, first heading to Madrid, then new destination Miami before heading to Houston and then back to Istanbul, arriving on Tuesday mornings.

    The move means that Turkish Cargo will offer services to and from five destinations in the US; Miami and Houston through the new freighter operation and Chicago, Atlanta and New York through bellyhold capacity.

    In total, the airline will now offer 220 tons of weekly capacity to the US, with 100 tons of that provided through the new freighter operation.

    "Miami Airport, being the largest in the US, and ranked tenth in the international cargo market, stands out for its capabilities in handling perishable goods, which represents 47% of international transit cargo," the airline group said.

    "Miami is also recognised for its cargo capabilities in handling fresh flowers, perishable fruits and vegetables, high technology products, telecommunications equipment and aircraft parts.

    "The region is also known for its imports of textile, fish, medicine, flowers, automobile, chemicals, petrochemicals and other perishable goods."

    The B777F - the first in the Turkish Cargo fleet - was delivered late last year with a second following soon after.

    At the very end of December, the airline also confirmed it had placed an order for a further three B777F.

    Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Port became the country’s second largest port in terms of container handling as it witnessed a rise of 21 percent in container volumes in 2017.

    The port handled 1.69 million TEU by the end of 2017, up from 1.4 million TEU seen in the year before.

    The increase in annual throughput was mainly due to the increased activity in imports and exports, amounting to an average of a 4 percent increase, with exports at 3 percent and imports at 5 percent.

    “The port’s success in reaching second place in container handling in the Kingdom after only four years of operations proves that we are confidently moving towards becoming a main hub on the maritime navigation and logistics map, both locally and regionally,” Rayan Qutub, CEO of King Abdullah Port, said.

    King Abdullah Port’s transshipment volume also surged by 28 percent in 2017, while the number of vessels received by the port increased to 820 vessels, with a 14 percent increase compared to 716 vessels received in 2016.

    Qutub added that the port is moving forward with executing its development plans to utilize best practices in the field of developing and operating ports and logistics support services.

    Gatwick Airport’s cargo volumes increased 24.4 per cent in 2017 helped by a rapidly expanding long-haul network.

    The airport located 30 miles south of central London handled 97,045 tonnes in 2017 compared to 77,995 tonnes in 2016, with volumes in December rising 33.6 per cent to 9,849 tonnes.

    It has welcomed new routes to destinations including Singapore, Rwanda, Seattle and Denver.

    Asia was also another growth area, with Hong Kong and Tianjin proving popular routes, and China Airlines launched services to Taipei at the start of December.

    Gatwick Airport chief executive officer, Stewart Wingate says: “Gatwick’s soaring long-haul and cargo growth in December is an impressive conclusion to 2017 and we’ll be strengthening the airport’s global connectivity even further this year, with new services to Buenos Aires, Austin and Chicago already confirmed to begin in the first quarter alone.”

    He adds: “This year, we’re also looking forward to British Airways’ biggest summer schedule at Gatwick for almost ten years, which will see 15 per cent more weekly BA flights than last summer.”

    Heathrow Airport has ended 2017 as the fastest growing major cargo airport in Europe with volumes almost reaching 1.7 million tonnes.

    The London airport handled 1,698,455 tonnes of cargo in 2017, up 10.2 per cent compared to 2016, which it says is the equivalent of 134,000 London buses.

    The key markets for growth were the US, East Asia and Europe, and December was also strong with volumes increasing 7.3 per cent to 143,353 tonnes, helped by the US, Japanese and Hong Kong markets all performing particularly well.

    Heathrow Airport chief executive officer, John Holland-Kaye says: “Heathrow had its best year ever in 2017 helping to strengthen the British economy as the country seeks to redefine its role in the world.

    “Our colleagues welcomed 78 million passengers and supported the delivery of record volumes of British trade to markets around the world. We’re looking forward to continuing to deliver for Britain in 2018 as we progress our expansion plans.”

    Other achievements throughout the year was reducing the noise footprint to the smallest recorded level in 11 years with 15 per cent fewer households affected by noise, which it says is the result of working with airlines to encourage the use of quieter aircraft.

    Heathrow has also passed a key milestone to deliver a third runway by launching its first public planning consultation.

    Turkish Airlines is continuing to expand its freighter fleet by ordering an additional three Boeing 777 Freighters, to join the two it took delivery of in December.

    The 777 Freighter is based on the 777-200LR passenger aircraft, and can fly 4,900 nautical miles with a full payload of 102 metric tonnes.

    Boeing says its range means significant cost savings for airlines, fewer stops and associated landing fees, less congestion at transfer hubs, lower cargo handling costs and shorter cargo delivery times.

    Turkish Airlines chairman of the board and the executive committee, Ilker Ayci says: “These freighter orders will surely contribute to our significant target for establishing a young and efficient cargo fleet. The new aircraft will be delivered this year and will provide us with additional flexibility to serve more destinations while we continue to develop our global freight service.”

    Boeing Commercial Airplanes senior vice president of sales – Middle East, Turkey, Russia, Central Asia and Africa, Marty Bentrott says: “The 777 Freighter is the largest and most capable twin-engine freighter in the world today. We’re pleased world-class customers like Turkish Airlines recognise the value of the 777 Freighter’s long range and large payload capability.”
