DUBAI: Etihad Airways’s freight division had its busiest month ever in October, lifting 53,785 tonnes of cargo — 501 tonnes more than its previous best in November 2014.

The airline said in a statement that the increase reflected growth in perishables traffic from Africa, US inbound and outbound traffic, and volumes from Europe to Asia Pacific.

Just a few days after achieving this record, Etihad Cargo enrolled its 4,000th member into its CargoConnect loyalty programme.

David Kerr, Senior Vice President of Etihad Cargo, said: “We’re delighted to have the ongoing support and commitment of our partners who have contributed to the record levels of uplift during October.”
