BRITAIN's second largest airport suffered an April cargo slump across its East Midlands, London Stansted, and Manchester gateways after a strong 2018, reports London's Loadstar.

Stansted was hit worst, down 14.5 per cent to 17,571 tonnes, Manchester dropped seven per cent to 8,826 tonnes and even integrator-dominated East Midlands (its largest cargo airport) was down 0.6 per cent to 29,160 tonnes.



While Manchester Airport Group (MAG) suffered, there was good news at rival Airport Industrial Property Unit Trust (Aiput), which has announced five new lettings at Heathrow's Blackthorne Point logistics park.



Micronutrients, London E Cargo and courier outfit City2City have taken on a combined space exceeding 300 square metres, while CH Robinson and Horizon International have both extended their leases at Blackthorne Point. This leaves 866 square metres to fill at Blackthorne, with the unoccupied Unit 10 having recently been refurbished.
