    Gatwick Airport is gaining another long-haul connection with the launch of flights to Shanghai in December operated by China Eastern Airlines.

    Shanghai has been the showpiece of China’s dramatic economic growth and is a global financial centre.

    It drives growth in the Yangtze River Economic Zone, a region accounting for 20 per cent of China’s GDP and responsible for a third of the country’s imports and exports.

    The services to Shanghai will begin on 7 December 2018, with Airbus A330-200 flights departing Gatwick on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 12.00h, and flying to Shanghai Pudong Airport, providing more than 3,700 tonnes of cargo capacity each year.

    Gatwick Airport chief executive officer, Stewart Wingate says: “I’m delighted to welcome China Eastern to Gatwick and look forward to the start of this vital new link to Shanghai which, like London, is undoubtedly one of the world’s most important cities and business hubs.”

    The airport has also released its figures for July, with monthly cargo volumes rising 28.8 per cent to 10,129 tonnes, and by 26.3 per cent on a moving annual basis to 109,315 tonnes, helped by new long-haul routes.

    Wingate says: “July’s traffic figures demonstrate that Gatwick’s long-haul network is driving the airport’s growth. These connections to China and other non-European countries will take on extra significance in a post-Brexit Britain as we become more reliant on them to generate vital growth through trade and by exploiting the other business opportunities that they provide.”

    The medium term outlook for global container port demand growth is positive thanks to strong underlying economic momentum across the world’s major economies.

    While there may be clouds on the horizon in the form of tariff and trade war fears, economic fundamentals are likely to win-out in the long run, global shipping consultancy Drewry said.

    “Against this positive picture near term container port capacity expansion will remain relatively subdued following several years of under investment, particularly in greenfield projects. As a result, average utilisation levels are expected to rise markedly across almost all regions of the world by 2022.”

    Drewry’s latest five year container port demand forecast is based on average global growth of just under 6% per annum, lifting world container port throughput in this period by almost 240 million TEU. The global container port industry is now of such a scale that 6% annual growth equates to around 45 million additional TEU each year, broadly equivalent to the size of the world’s largest container port, Shanghai.

    Bottom-up capacity projections on a terminal-by-terminal basis present a more conservative picture, with global container port capacity projected to increase by around 125 million TEU by 2022, a growth rate of just over 2% per annum. This is clearly well below projected demand and reflects the cautious investor sentiment towards greenfield projects over the last few years. As a consequence, average utilisation at the global level is forecast to increase significantly from 68% in 2017 to around 80% by 2022. Average regional utilisation levels are projected to increase most sharply in Greater China, North Asia, Southeast Asia and West Coast South America.

    “Assuming our demand projections are well founded, and the threat of trade wars dissipates, we expect many terminal operators and investors to review and potentially increase their activity levels in terms of new capacity additions,” said Neil Davidson, Drewry’s senior analyst for ports and terminals.

    “Crucially however, all capacity is not the same,” added Davidson.

    “Indeed for certain port markets, individual ports and specific terminals, the need for additional capacity may be even greater. Rapid growth in ship sizes has increased the segmentation of terminal capacity, such that today, all ‘deep-sea’ capacity simply cannot handle all ‘deep-sea’ vessels. It is often the case that berths with the infrastructure to handle the largest ships are the most highly utilised and in short supply, while older deep-water berths are under-utilised.”

    Emirates will introduce two additional flights to its Toronto (YYZ) service from August 18 onwards, complementing its existing schedule. The Dubai-based airline that celebrated 10 years of operations in Canada last October, introduced new aircraft on the route from a Boeing 777 in October 2007 to the flagship A380 in 2009.

    The A380 scheduled service increased passenger capacity on the Toronto service by 40 percent and since then, passenger occupancy on the route has been consistently full, averaging 90 percent with demand outstripping supply. The additional frequency will fulfill the strong demand on the route and add 65 percent capacity to the market.

    The additional flights will give travellers from Toronto and from across Emirates’ network, even more choice and connectivity when booking their travel via the Dubai hub. It will help to further boost inbound tourism for Canada and meet growing demand from travellers from key destinations in the United Arab Emirates, India, Pakistan, Iran, Bangladesh, South Africa and Saudi Arabia. Passengers from Canada will also be able to take advantage of the additional flights to travel to popular destinations like Dhaka, Kabul, Tehran, Karachi, Hyderabad, Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Johannesburg.

    Not only the passengers will benefit from the additional flights, the route also presents trade opportunities for the carrier. According to the latest trade statistics, the UAE continues to be Canada’s largest export market in the Middle East and North Africa since 2005. Canadian exports to the UAE reached CA$1.6 billion in 2017, an increase of 41 percent over 2007, and its CA$1.4 billion trade surplus with the UAE was Canada’s fourth largest globally. In 2017 alone, bilateral trade between Canada and the UAE exceeded CA$1.79 billion, having grown by 54 percent since the two countries were first connected by direct air services by Emirates in 2007. Emirates SkyCargo has also played an important role in connecting Canada to the world.

    In 2017, Emirates transported over 4,300 tonnes of cargo, to and from Canada. Currently, major cargo imports include fruit, vegetables and fish. Major exports include pharmaceuticals, electronics, mining/drilling equipment, livestock, lobsters and courier services.

    Doha-based airline Qatar Airways will launch direct five-times weekly flights to Gothenburg, Sweden starting December 12, making it the airline’s second Swedish gateway after Stockholm. The service will be served with a Boeing 787-8 aircraft, featuring 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class.

    Not just passenger service, the carrier also offers cargo capacity out of Gothenburg with this new service. This will provide a direct uplift for major exports to trade markets in Africa, Middle East, Asia, Australia and New Zealand via the carrier’s hub in Doha.

    Qatar Airways Cargo currently offers more than 870 tonnes of cargo capacity each week out of its Nordic destinations Helsinki, Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm.

    Jonas Abrahamsson, chief executive officer at Swedavia said: "Sweden is the largest economy in Scandinavia, and at the moment it is also the strongest in Europe. New direct routes are an important contributing factor, as they improve connectivity to markets that are crucial to the Swedish business community and attract capital and knowledge to the region. This direct route is the result of successful cooperation where we, together with the region, have shown Qatar Airways the potential in the western Swedish market. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that Swedavia and western Sweden jointly welcome this large Middle East airline to Gothenburg Landvetter Airport.”

    Gothenburg, Sweden’s second-largest city, is set to grow by almost a third by the end of 2035. It is an important industrial and business centre, with the largest port in the Nordic countries.

    Qatar Airways launched flights to Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport in 2007. The Stockholm-Doha route, which operates 14 flights per week, is also operated by a wide-body Dreamliner 787 with 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class.

    Qatar Airways currently serves the Nordic capital cities of Oslo, Norway; Copenhagen, Denmark; Stockholm, Sweden and Helsinki, Finland, to and from Doha’s Hamad International Airport (HIA). Alongside Helsinki’s current Boeing 787 service, the cities of Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo are also served with a fleet of Dreamliner aircraft.

    Tom Jobim International Airport’s cargo terminal RIOgaleão Cargo has handled more than 46.5 thousand tonnes of cargo in its import and export terminals during the first half of 2018. That represents a growth of 41 percent year-on-year.

    The total weight registered for imports, from January to June, was of 19.1 thousand tonnes, a 30 percent increase when compared to the previous year with emphasis on the Air Transport, Pharmaceuticals and Oil & Gas segments.

    In terms of exports, the growth was of 49 percent, totaling 27.4 thousand tonnes of cargo received. Main cargos were from Agricultural, Automotive and Air Transport segments.

    The Brazilian gateway for cargo continues to set new records in exports by receiving more than 6.4 thousand tonnes of cargo only in June, which surpassed in 28 percent its own record registered in March this year.

    The cargo terminal prepared a detailed strategic plan to face the period of major Brazilian road strike, which directly impacted logistics activities throughout the country. This plan ensured the full operation of the cargo terminal activities and complied with additional demands on the kerosene filling of charter freighters and passengers’ flights. In addition, during the first half of the year, requests were received from other airports, which were supported by the good level of operational services and warehouse capacity of Rio de Janeiro international airport’s cargo terminal.

    The airport expects growth in the import volume in Pharmaceuticals and Fashion segments in the first half of the year, in addition to the expected resumption of the Technology and Oil & Gas segments. For exports, the projection from July to December is to continue to grow maintenance in the Agriculture and Automotive segments.

    The new tailor-made solutions portfolio continues to work alongside the logistics chain by offering services in six different categories, such as controlled temperature loads, large and heavy objects, valuable cargo, which requires special security, live animals and availability of clear customs spaces to facilitate all the processes in the logistics chain – this last one would be available by the first semester of 2019.

    "All this physical and strategic structure gives the customer guarantee of a complete range of services of excellence," explains Patrick Fehring, director of RIOgaleão Cargo.
