7% increase in Cargo across MAG with East Midlands as largest UK cargo airport

Statistics from MAG’s audited full-year results, for the period 1st April 2015 – 31st March 2016 show that income from Cargo has grown by 7%. 

Cargo income has grown strongly, up 7% year-on-year at £22.7m, which is a benefit of continued growth in internet shopping and new route launches. Cargo volumes across the group are up 4.8% year on year. East Midlands Airport has a very important dual role as both the biggest airport for dedicated cargo traffic in the UK and a key hub for passenger traffic for the cities of Nottingham, Derby and Leicester. Performance on the passenger side has also been ahead of expectations in the year to March 2016.

Cargo income has increased by £0.8m as a greater volume of express freight traffic, in particular with DHL, takes advantage of the airport’s freight facilities and central location.
