Hong Kong International Airport’s cargo throughput recorded a year-on-year increase of 10.1 percent to 478,000 tonnes in November as the airport handled 120,000 passengers and 14,875 flight movements during the month, marking increases of 48.1% and 18.4% respectively.
The increase in cargo throughput in the month was mainly attributed to the 16.1% growth in transshipments, continuing the traditional peak period for air cargo. Overall cargo to and from North America, Europe and Southeast Asia experienced the most significant increases during the month.
Passenger traffic continued to remain at a significantly low level compared to the pre-pandemic level recorded in 2019. In November 2021, outbound transfer passengers from Mainland China to North America recorded significant increases.
