The Airports Council International's (ACI's) half-year statistics show the impact that the ground of passenger services as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak has had on cargo hubs.
According to ACI the world's 10 leading cargo hubs saw first-half demand decline by 4.1 per cent year on year.
Hong Kong maintained its place as the world's busiest cargo airport despite a 10.2 per cent decline, ahead of FedEx's Memphis hub (0.8 per cent) and Shanghai (0.4 per cent).
The biggest decline recorded at the top ten cargo airports was the 26.7 per cent drop off recorded at Dubai as fewer cargo transshipments would have taken place due to reduce passenger connections, while at the other end of the scale freighter hub Anchorage recorded a 7.7 per cent increase as the number of all-cargo flights increased, according to London's Air Cargo News.
