With a slight increase of the economy, air cargo transport grows in 2017
July 27, 2017 - SÃO PAULO - The first months of 2017 breathed new life into the cargo air transportation sector in Brazil, which has suffered consecutive falls in the last three years. Last year, 419 thousand tons were transported in the domestic market - the same level of 2009, according to the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC). But the expectation of the Brazilian Association of Airlines (Abear) is that the demand will increase by 170 thousand tons by 2022. In the first half of this year, Abear indicates that the increase in the volume handled reached 7.2%.
