          Shanghai air cargo decreased

          2016/5/22      view:
          Three Cs": Chengdu, Chongqing and CGO (the airport code for Zhengzhou). This trio of cities has collectively overtaken Shanghai as Cathay's largest Chinese freight market. Volumes at Zhengzhou, the smallest of the three, grew over 40 percent in 2012 while Chengdu saw steady growth and Chongqing double-digit growth. Shanghai saw single-digit percent decreases.  More resources are being put into establishing Chengdu and Chongqing as western capitals for China, and passenger services have flowed, with British Airways and Qatar Airways the latest to announce service to Chengdu. Finnair and Qatar already serve Chongqing. Zhengzhou maintains a less diversified economy and so sees a heavy presence of dedicated freighters and no intercontinental services. Zhengzhou in the first 11 months of 2012 (the latest data available) recorded 46 percent higher growth in volume (130.4 million tonnes) than the corresponding period a year earlier, which in turn recorded growth over 2010.

          At Pudong airport cargo volumes decreased 5.3 percent for all of 2012 compared to 2011 (which under-performed compared to 2010), but at 2.9 billion tonnes moved in 2012, the airport is still a heavyweight.

          Smaller Shanghai Hongqiao, primarily a domestic airport, saw 3.6 percent growth (Oct-2012 and Dec-2012 figures are unreported) to 396.4 million tonnes – more than Zhengzhou or Chongqing but less than Chengdu. As at Pudong, 2012 levels were under 2011's, which in turn were lower than 2010's.
