The Air France-KLM Group, Etihad Airways and airberlin have signed a series of code-share agreements, a move that jump-starts commercial partnerships between the airlines. In addition to benefiting customers, the deal expands the networks of Air France, KLM, Etihad Airways and airberlin.
AirBridgeCargo Airlines successfully hauled 20 cars from its Sheremetyevo International Airport hub to destinations across Europe, North America and Asia in September. A historic figure for the Moscow-based carrier, eight of these cars were moved following the Moscow International Automobile Salon 2012, an annual event for the automotive sector.
Delta Air Lines transported 201,698 tonnes of cargo in September, a 3.2-percent, year-over-year, increase. The carrier has also seen an uptick in freight volumes from a nine-month perspective; Delta’s traffic surged 1.1 percent from January-to-September 2011. Rival American Airlines hasn’t seen similar increases, however. American Airlines’ freight traffic plunged 8.3 percent, year-over-year, in September, while cargo volumes receded 1.2 percent from the first nine months of 2012.
