Biggest monthly uplift in tonnage for Etihad Cargo


Etihad Cargo has achieved its busiest month ever in October this year – uplifting 53,785 tonnes of cargo and thereby surpassing its previous best recorded in November 2014 – by 501 tonnes.

The Abu Dhabi-based carrier says this reflected growth in perishables traffic from Africa, US inbound and outbound traffic, and volumes from Europe to Asia Pacific.

This comes a few days after enrolling its 4,000th member into its CargoConnect loyalty programme.

Etihad Cargo senior vice president, David Kerr says: “Customer loyalty plays a big part in the success of Etihad Cargo operations worldwide. We’re delighted to have the ongoing support and commitment of our partners who have contributed to the record levels of uplift during October.”
