The peak season of air cargo – which according to some observers will be strong, is coming, indeed it is already here.

Several shippers interviewed by Loadstar said they were trying to secure hold for the upcoming winter season, and that they had seen some excitement especially with the approach of Chinese Golden Week. According to Flexport’s EMEA air shipping manager David Wystrach, the one underway may be the last “calm week before the storm”, while another anonymous operator said he has already seen an “increase in air freight rates”. , and this still without having observed the effect on demand of the launches of new technological products (for example Apple’s Watch and iPad, just presented).

Wystrach added that he believes that the next peak season will, however, be driven more by the shortage of hold (in particular the lack of belly capacity in many passenger flights) rather than by an increase in demand, “with the exception of products in route and the possible impact of the distribution of a vaccine “.

The connection is part of the operator’s Global flight operations program, which overall connects Beijing, Shanghai, Zhengzhou and Hong Kong to Chicago and Frankfurt ten times a week with full charter flights. Some freight forwarder had started this new type of service, which joins the Block Space Agreements it has with various airlines since the beginning of the year, with the outbreak of the pandemic.

The big Italian shipping players are also doing something similar, who for some days have been promoting the availability of cargo holdings they have purchased by hiring cargo planes mainly used with North America and China.

Milan Malpensa reopen Terminal 1: from June 15 Terminal 2 closes, which has handled all flights for almost three months, and operations resume from the larger and more modern terminal. And you do it amidst a thousand safety precautions.The minimum threshold for reopening the T1 was three thousand daily passengers: Armando Brunini, CEO of Sea, had prudently indicated a date between June 15 and July 1, but the one for 15 was already circulating as a more realistic forecast, especially in light of the re-start of Easyjet, with several “domestic” flights (ie internal) to which they will gradually add the international ones.

How Milan Malpensa Terminal 1 reopens

Sea has already prepared all measures to prevent contagion risk. At this point he only expects the ENAC go-ahead, the National Civil Aviation Authority, but all are already ready for the effective reopening of Terminal 1.
