How coronavirus turned the air cargo industry upside down?
When the United States imposed travel restrictions on 26 different European countries on March 14, 2020, the air cargo industry turned upside down.
“The next day there was a sudden influx of air cargo from Europe into the USA, because the capacity of passenger aircraft, the belly space which accounts for approximately 30% of the world’s cargo capacity on flights from Europe to the USA , were suddenly non-existent,” says Pierre Van der Stichele, Group Director for Cargo Operations at Chapman Freeborn.
Rytis Beresnevicius from AeroTime News spoke with Pierre Van der Stichele, Group Director for Cargo Operations at Chapman Freeborn, an Avia Solutions Group family company that specializes in air charter operations.
