Top 20 Cargo Hubs in 2017

According to Airports Council International (ACI), air cargo volumes at the world’s 20 busiest airports grew 6.8% in 2017, with Hong Kong again the number one freight hub at more than 5m tonnes, a 9.4% year-on-year increase.

The top 20 cargo hubs handled a combined 51m tonnes last year, representing 43% of global airfreight volumes, but warned of the spectre of uncertainty from “protectionist sentiments”. ACI added that the rise in cargo volume growth reflected a global trend of “strengthening trade, e-commerce, and the reliability factor”.
