Transaero cargo traffic recovers in July

Transaero Airlines

Transaero Airlines has seen its cargo traffic recover in July after the earlier decline amid the economic headwinds.

The Russian carrier reports it delivered 5,742 tonnes of cargo in the month, a three per cent increase on July last year. Revenue cargo tonne kilometres grew to 31,837,600, which was a rise of one per cent on July 2014.

Transaero carried most of the cargo on domestic routes, which made up 4,500 tonnes in July, a four per cent growth from the same month last year. The airline primarily ensures cargo deliveries to Russia’s far east.

The carrier’s cargo traffic on international routes reached 1,200 tonnes, which corresponds to the same results in July 2014.

Transaero is one of Russia’s top three largest cargo carriers and transports cargo and mail in the holds of its passenger aircraft as well as using a Tupolev Tu-204-100 cargo aircraft.
