Top 55 Aircargo Airlines 2004.

Fri Sep 30, 2005 8:42 am

here is a intresting link with the top 55 aircargo airlines 2004.

http://www.aircargoworld.com/features/0905_1.htm

what airline is a surprise for you...?


For me it´s CAL on the 52 position.

They do not operate a lof freighters... so the loadfactors on the flights must be pritty high.

As I know there are some airlines arround that are operating under the DHL brand, biggest seems to be AStar AirCargo (number 49) operating for DHL in the US.

Whats interesting to me are the yearly growth numbers:

#15 - Emirates - 35.7%
#25 - China Eastern - 43.5%
#27 - Qantas - 40.7%
#38 - Dragon Air - 25.1%
#46 - Aeroflot - 22.2%
#48 - Gulf Air - 21.3%
#53 - Qatar Airways - 69.9%
#55 - Air-India - 34.1%

Stellar growth amongst ME carriers and strong overall Asian region performance.

-A.

It only makes it onto the US cargo airlines list next to the other lists. Kitty Hawk is the ranks 22nd among US cargo carriers.

Interesting Data....

Explains many things...

At PDX, the airport I follow the most:

Lufthansa is the #1 cargo hauler of all the passenger airlines.
Korean is the #1 cargo hauler of cargo sub operations of primarily pax airlines.
Or #4 in Cargo-Only operators, in this order, FedEx, UPS, and Airborne Express.

And for those who are curious, here is the per flight, average cargo load in pounds, for the month of August 2005. Source: www.portofportland.com

Cargo Airlines:
FedEx 44213.7
UPS 28298.9
Korean 28076.9
UPS 18931.8
Air China 14812.5
ATI 11826.1
ABX 8805.3
Kitty Hawk4804.3

Pax Airlines:
Lufthansa 10935.5
Northwest 912.7
Delta Air Lines 532.6
Southwest 187.4
Continental 174.4
America West 168.2

@AVIANCA
the CAL on position 52 is the israeli all cargo carrier - not CI / China Airlines that you probably mean - they are indeed way way ahead on position 7......

Hi Hailstone,

thanks for the info, but I now very well CAL, they have there main hu in LGG, and they are offering for example flights from LGG into JFK. With the B747.

Sadly they cut ATL from the destination list... They operated before two times a week via JFK.

(anyway thanks for the info.)

I was suprised to see UPS at number 4. I would have guessed #2 behind FedEx. Huge fleet of all freight airplanes, but they are still beat out by Korean and Lufthansa.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

Amazing how LAN ranks the highest of Latin America, after all Chile has a smaller total GDP than Brazil, Argentina or Mexico, and yet LAN carries more freight than Iberia or Air India

beside all the capazity they have with the pax flight, they are using

B747-400 from Global Supply System + B747-200 from Atlas Air.

The exact schedule I have at my work (I can e-mail it to you if you want).

The operation is mostly based ex germany (FRA,HHN,CGN), for example.

FRA-ATL (2xper week)
HHN-ATL-IAH (1xper week)
HHN-ORD (1xper week)

and severall flights to HKG and JNB also from the mentioned german airports above.

The three 744Fs of Global Supply Systems operate out of STN exclusively for BA and have the inscription 'Operated for British Airways World Cargo' on the nose:

They obviously operate long haul but also stop at places like that well known FR destination, Hahn in Germany, on the way to the Far East and like OPO on the way back from southern Africa.

On short haul all (or nearly all?) the DHL aircraft operating into LHR (mainly on Saturday and Sunday) are 'BA World Cargo' flights. These flights include A300s and 752F but the aircraft use vary.

I believe that BA takes some (significant?) space on the mid-afternoon Korean Air Cargo arrivals at LHR. And then, of course there are the freight holds of the world's second largest fleet on 747s. And I have been told that the freight capacity of their 772s is very high. (It was suggested even greater than the 744.)
