Slowdown will hit profit outlook
The first half of 2019 has been challenging for the global air cargo business. IATA reported that global air freight markets showed FTKs, decreasing by 3.4% in May 2019, compared to the same period in 2018. This was a slight improvement on the 5.6% contraction in April
Demand drivers
Strong overall demand, a flexible freighter fleet and a new partnership with Emirates SkyCargo add up to a positive outlook for Cargolux, Europe’s largest all-cargo airline, as Helen Massy-Beresford discovers
Online opportunity
Growth of e-commerce has accelerated considerably, presenting huge opportunities to an air cargo industry only now climbing out of a period of stagnation, says Kerry Reals
High potential
As we head back to work after a summer break for much of Europe, it’s a busy issue for Airline Cargo Management
Noah’s ark
Airlines and operators with the specialist facilities necessary to handle live animal shipments are reporting strong demand for their services, as Helen Massy-Beresford finds out
All change
Alaska Airlines is on the brink of a second transformation, one even more cataclysmic than the previous round, as Ian Putzger discovers
Charter shifts
Ian Putzger discovers how operators are looking outside their usual areas for new business to offset a decline in demand from the likes of defence, government, as well as oil and gas
The borrowers
Aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance (ACMI) providers are broadening their platforms and client bases. Ian Putzger talks to several of the key players to investigate this increasing trend
Roaring yields
Not every live animal shipment makes for good business, with regulatory and infrastructure hurdles common. But flows through South Africa can make good, albeit tricky, yields, while horse shipments are booming and set to grow further. Ian Putzger reports
Broker business
There may no longer be a peak season for charter operators to enjoy, but there is no shortage of one-off supply chain disruptions. 2015 has been particularly good for brokers and carriers, finds Martin Roebuck
