Air Freight Drain

Cairns Airport numbers for October were so boring they don’t even deserve a graph. What does deserve a graph is the decline in international freight through the airport.

Cairns Freight

These are BITRE numbers to FY17. Lowest since 1990-91. Guessing this is freight on scheduled flights. There were numbers somewhere at BITRE which I had previously downloaded by destination and indicated Cairns international freight to be overwhelmingly Hong Kong.

Probably worth a further look given media commentary on air freight and agricultural export potential.
