Amsterdam Schiphol's 2017 cargo traffic up 5.4pc at 1.75m tonnes


Amsterdam Airport Schiphol's cargo volume increased in 2017 by 5.4 per cent over 2016 to 1.75 million tonnes, according to preliminary results from the Royal Schiphol Group.
The anticipated growth comes as Europe's third busiest cargo airport awaits the outcome of a Dutch government decision to resolve an aircraft slots shortage at Schiphol which has prompted some freighter operators take their business to rival airports.
The Dutch government's decision on a "local rule" proposal by airline KLM is expected by the end of January, reported London's Air Cargo News.
The Netherlands shippers' council, EVO, said that the local rule offers "a more flexible approach on the registration of full freighter flights to maintain historic rights at Schiphol." It would prioritise slot allocation of unused slots for freighter flights.
Amsterdam's forecast 5.4 per cent 2017 volume growth is likely to compare favourably with its continental rivals. Germany's Frankfurt airport reported a 4.2 per cent rise for the first 11 months of 2017 to two million tonnes of cargo.
Over the same period, London Heathrow in fourth place recorded a 10.5 per cent year-on-year spike in cargo volumes to 1.5 million tonnes, while Europe's second largest cargo gateway, Paris, registered 2.5 per cent cargo traffic growth to just under two million tonnes.
