Etihad's January figures increase by 27 percent

By Hpanchal on February 19, 2013

Etihad Cargo’s monthly uplift figures for January have increased by 27 percent from January 2012, Etihad Airways announced Tuesday.

Etihad Cargo’s figures for January are 32,613 tonnes.

"The impressive tonnage figures for January were driven largely by increased demand into and out of China and India,” said Kevin Knight, chief strategy and planning officer for Etihad Airways. "Looking ahead, our forecasts point to continued strong demand in key exporting and importing markets such as China, India, Southeast Asia and Europe."

Two weeks ago, Etihad reported annual tonnage growth of 19 percent for 2012.

The airline has also ordered three freighters for 2013 and 2014, a Boeing B777F and two Airbus A330-200F aircraft.
