Airfreight demand continues on the rise

By Staff Reports on January 9, 2014

African carriers registered a contraction of 1.2 percent for freight demand. After a solid start to the year, growth in air cargo carried by African airlines weakened from the middle of 2013. Although the region’s trade volumes continue to increase and local economies are experiencing fast growth, competition from airlines outside the region is intense and the lack of adequate infrastructure and political stability continue to hinder growth potential.
