  • In July, cargo/mail volume continued the double digit growth trend and increased by 20%, compared to the same period of 2017.

America with 32% increase and Far East with 16% increase.
  • In July, Africa, N. America and Far East showed load factor growth of 5.5 points, 3.5 points and 4 points, respectively.
