Pumping Traffic For August 16, 2021
Pumping TrafficTop notch air cargo professional Angel Ramirez, Managing Director United Cargo took the package and retired last week. Angel RamirezAngel was a CO Cargo guy that moved with the merger to Chicago 11 years ago and was a much beloved in the industry go-to fixture ever since. From the Dominican Republic, we hear Angel was most recently in Miami visiting his Mom, considering his options moving ahead. Good luck “Good Guy” Angel . . . Air Cargo remains the only form of air transport currently operating at boffo levels as compared to 2019. Last month worldwide air cargo delivered numbers up 12% as compared to 2019 . . . Airbus said it delivered 297 aircraft during the first six months of 2021 earning a 2.2B€ net profit. Airbus is also looking at a freighter version of its A350 . . . The Delta variant (COVID-19, not the airline) in China is severely impacting travel as both domestic and international are off in August as compared to early 2020 levels. In Port news operations at Ningbo Meishan port terminal were suspended on August 11, 2021, due to a case of COVID-19. The terminal handles about 25% of the port’s container cargo. The authorities have said that the operating systems will remain down until Ningbo Municipal Health Commission can determine the extent of the outbreak. This is the second shutdown at a major Chinese port after the ShenzhenYantian Port closure for over a month in May . . . Everywhere there are glimmers of domestic and regional travel with surging numbers. As example, American Airlines Q2 pax totals down 20.6% anticipates 90% domestic seat capacity and 80% of international seat capacity, but the reality check is that in terms of what is flying long haul international, the situation everywhere including Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and the rest of the world is a real bloodbath of red ink. Intra-Europe flights are at -30% compared to 2019 while intercontinental service landed at -47% during July . . . Dublin gateway said that July 2021 pax dipped by 81% versus July 2019. London Luton July pax down 84.7% on July 2019. International traffic from and to Middle-East in July of 1,739 flights is -43% as compared to February 2020 . . . Jet fuel prices flying high from 100 cts/gal last autumn to nearly double@183 cts/gal this month . . .
