COVID-19 Pandemic Continues to Impact Air Traffic in July

In July 2020, HKIA cargo throughput declined 7.3% to 372,000 tonnes compared to the same month last year.

Cargo throughput to and from Southeast Asia, Mainland China and Europe experienced the most significant decreases. Transshipments remained low due to shortage of belly capacity on passenger flights. Yet, cargo throughput was relatively steady in comparison with the drop in passenger throughput.

Exports and imports also increased by 7% and 4% respectively, compared to the same month last year.

Over the first seven months of the year, cargo throughput recorded a 9.7% drop to 2.4 million tonnes.

On a 12-month rolling basis, cargo throughput fell 7.7% to 4.5 million tonnes.
