Cargo increase at Leipzig/Halle Airport


The cargo volume at Leipzig/Halle Airport (LEJ), Europe’s fifth-largest freight hub, continues to grow, bucking the general trend on the German market. In May, the volume of cargo handled was 5.4 percent higher than the month before, at around 114,502 tonnes. From January to May, the value was 1.6 percent higher than last year, at 519,489 tonnes. In the midst of this global crisis, Leipzig/Halle is thus again asserting itself as a dynamically growing cargo airport.

One key source of this growth is the freight handled at the DHL hub, which is the largest in the logistics group’s network.            

The volume handled by other air cargo and logistics companies also continued to rise disproportionately: with the Corona crisis in full swing, in May freight charter volumes rose by 65.6 percent year on year. These included cargo flights using passenger aircraft, such as those by Aeroflot, Nordwind Airlines and Vietnam Airlines. Altogether, some 60 cargo airlines fly into Leipzig/Halle Airport, operating a route network with more than 200 destinations around the world.
