#2: Major shifts in airport cargo rankings
2018 saw a major reshuffling of rankings in the preliminary top 20 cargo airports list.
Taiwan Taoyuan Airport (TPE) moved up a ranking to surpass Narita Airport (NRT), placing them at 8 and 9, respectively. Los Angeles (LAX) moved up three positions from number 13 to 10 in 2018. Doha (DOH) also moved up several positions from 16 to 11, Guangzhou (CAN) moved up to 17 from 18 and Chicago (ORD) moved to 18 from 20 in 2018.
Frankfurt (FRA) moved down two positions to 13 from 11, Paris (CVG) moved down to 14 from 10, Miami (MIA) moved down to 15 from 14, Beijing (PEK) moved from 15 to 16, London (LHR) moved from 17 to 19 and Amsterdam (AMS) moved from 19 to 20.
The major shifts in airport rankings demonstrate global shifts in cargo flows, which will likely continue as carriers continue developing new networks and countries – such as Turkey and China – construct new infrastructure to attract these carriers and their cargo.Like This Post
