Dubai Cargo Volumes Soar

Cargo volumes at Al Maktoum International, Dubai World Central, continued to rise sharply in the first half of 2015, as the airport rose up the ranks of the top cargo airports worldwide taking the 19th position up from 20th earlier in the year, TradeArabia reported. Freight volumes surged 42% in the first half of 2015 to 443,012 tons, up from the 311,365 tons achieved in the same period last year, a statement said. The growth was driven by Dubai Airports’ strategic decision to relocate all dedicated freighters from Dubai International to DWC in May last year, it said.
