Schiphol freighters fail to offset drooping bellies

[ July 20, 2020   //   ]

An increase in full freighter cargo did not make up for the decline in belly traffic in the first half of 2020 at Amsterdam Schiphol airport, which saw a 14.% fall in freight to 655,942 tonnes. Full freighter flights were up 48.1% but the number of belly flights dropped by 51.6%. However Schiphol rose from fourth to third in the list of the busiest European cargo hubs during the period.
