Atlanta cargo flights increase 40pc

  09.09.2011    

The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has been boosting the number of weekly cargo flights by more than 40 per cent since last year, says an airport statement.
Cargo carriers added 24 flights a month this year. Starting from September, Asiana Airlines will operate seven flights weekly, with daily 747-400 service.
The airline began service in Atlanta last year with four weekly flights. Asiana has an estimated $24 million economic impact on Atlanta and the region, the report said.
Singapore's China Cargo Airlines and Singapore Airlines are also increasing frequencies. This month China Cargo Airlines will double its weekly flights from three to six while Singapore Airlines added a flight this year, bringing it to four weekly flights. Cargolux also now offers five weekly flights on 747-400 freighters, the Shipping Gazette reports.
Last year, Atlanta airport increased flights 17 per cent over 2009. From January to June 2011, the airport moved 328,930 tonnes of cargo. International and domestic cargo both increased by two per cent during the period over last year.
"More than 80 per cent of US consumers can be reached in a day's trucking from Hartsfield-Jackson," said aviation general manager Louis Miller, according to GlobeNewswire via COMTEX. "This is a tremendous advantage for businesses looking to distribute products quickly, efficiently and inexpensively."
