Hello,

I am currently analysing the air transport statistics provided by the Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation ( http://dgca.nic.in/reports/rep-ind.htm )

Chapter 8.7 in each year's statistics shows the cargo tonnage of non-indian cargo carriers on ad-hoc cargo flights. Besides familiar names such as Fedex, UPS, Eva Air and Cargolux (assuming that these flights all count as ad-hoc due to traffic right reasons) there are three carriers of which I never heard so far:

- Air Shaggon: Could this be China Airlines, or an agent for them? They are shown at the airports DEL, BLR and BOM
- Flywell Aviation and
- Axios

I assume that Flywell and Axios do real ad-hoc flights as their tonnage is very low and changes from month to month.

Thanks for any further info...

Cheers,
Tom

Quoting Patroni (Thread starter):
- Air Shaggon: Could this be China Airlines,

Shangai cargo does operate an MD-11 Freighter to BOM.

Thanks Mel!

It seems that CI is included in the scheduled traffic data as I see a LUX-DEL freight production which is only served by them. So thanks again for solving this mystery of Air Shaggon...

While working on the 2006-7 Indian statistics, one more question came to my mind:

The airline data (international scheduled, table 7.1) show an international freight production of 927,042t. Foreign ad-hoc operations (table 8.7) add another 70,208t. However the airport data (table 5.69) indicates an international freight tonnage of 1,022,148t handled at Indian airports, i.e. around 25,000t more than reported by the airlines.

To me it appears that there is some double counting in place, e.g. for cargo on an international flight continuing to a domestic Indian destination or vv., e.g. LHR-BOM-DEL ? I don't expect that 25k tonnes were carried on Indian non-scheduled services? But maybe you (or anyone else on this forum) knows a better explanation?

Cheers,
Tom
