Hong Kong International Airport's (HKIA) cargo throughput increased 11.3% to 2.3 million tonnes (mt) in the first six months of 2017, assisted by a June export surge.

Cargo throughput in June was 410,000 tonnes, representing year-on-year growth of 11.4% at the world's number one air freight hub in 2016. Passenger throughput was up 1.3%to 35.7 million while flight movements increased 0.9% to 206,560 year on year.

The HKIA said that the strong half year cargo result was due largely to higher exports coinciding with an improvement in global trade.

"A 17%year-on-year increase in June exports led to high growth in cargo tonnage for the month. Transshipments also registered strong 10% growth. Among key trading regions, Europe and North America saw the most significant increases in June," said the airport statement.
