Athens airport to sell air freight over sea freight to major exporters


Athens International Airport's cargo chief hopes that a "large portion of exported goods" will be moved by air rather than by sea as they do today, reports Atlanta-area Air Cargo World.
Airport freight manager Alexis Siori, along with a group of forwarders and members of the airport's Cargo Community Committee, hope to convince a specific group of exports to make the switch.
"We are conducting meetings to sell this idea," said Mr Siori. "We are very keen to maintain our considerable air freight capacity and facilities during these difficult times, against the day when things improve, which we are confident, will happen."
Courier and mail traffic account for 23 per cent of Greek air freight exports, though major Greek exports are perishables, telecom equipment, health care goods and textiles.
As it stands, cargo traffic has declined with September export air freight falling 13.3 per cent year on year, according to airport statistics, continuing a monthly with August down 6.9 per cent.
But outbound mail, while flat in September, enjoyed an 8.6 per cent increase in August. Outbound mail in May, June and July also saw year-on-year increases.
