    Having been connected to Mumbai through its partnership with Jet Airways, Virgin Atlantic Cargo is ready to add the city to its network again.

    Managing director Dominic Kennedy tells Air Cargo Week that services across India have been performing well this year, and adding daily London to Mumbai services on 27 October reflects confidence in the market.

    The services are resuming after a four-year gap, which was filled by Jet Airways until it ceased operations on 17 April.

    A Boeing 787-9 will be used on the route, which is popular with passengers and has up to 26 tonnes of cargo capacity.

    Kennedy has high hopes for the Mumbai route, saying: “We expect to benefit from the strong growth of the Mumbai market in recent years, which has seen revenues ex Mumbai to the UK and US increase by more than 50% since 2015 in revenue terms, and an increase of 46% to India from both countries over the same period.”

    Virgin has served the Indian market for almost 20 years, and Kennedy says the airline has a lot of loyal customers supporting the new route.

    He says: “In addition to our direct services to and from the UK, Virgin Atlantic’s extensive choice of destinations in the US, alongside our fast connections over London, has always been a prime reason why customers moving cargoes to and from India have worked with us and we expect this to increase when Mumbai re-joins our network in October.”

    The pharma market out of India is particularly strong. Kennedy says Virgin’s GDP compliance and Pharma Zone at Heathrow Airport will be attractive to customers.

    He says: “Mumbai is India’s commercial centre, and with the country’s vibrant economy and growing manufacturing base, we expect to see a diverse range of products on board our daily flights.”

    The first half of 2019 has been good, with strong revenue on daily Delhi flights, which are operated by an Airbus A340-600.

    Kennedy says: “Delhi-Heathrow has been especially buoyant and we are on target to outperform 2018 which was a record year for us on this key cargo route.”

    Delhi has been served by Virgin for 19 years.

    Kennedy says: “It has been a very sustainable route from a cargo perspective and the growth we saw in 2018 and the first half of 2019 shows the level of demand we continue to experience.”

    Virgin is committed to the Indian market and is confident it will remain an important part of the airline’s network.

    He says: “The Indian government has set a very ambitious growth strategy for the country’s economy in the years ahead so we expect India to become even stronger and more significant, driven by its large consumer market and thriving manufacturing and services sectors.”

    Budapest Airport (BUD), swiftly developing international air cargo hub, organised workshop events in Shanghai and Hong Kong for representatives from Chinese air cargo and e-commerce companies.

    Chinese e-commerce giants Yunda Express, STO Express and SF Express, Qingdao and Xi’an airports, and the Consul General of Hungary in Shanghai, attended the workshops.

    Together, they discussed several topics ranging from e-commerce to the Belt and Road Initiative, as well as competition from direct Chinese train services, and new routes opening between BUD and Chinese airports.

    The Hungarian hub hopes to benefit from the workshops as the attendees learnt more about BUD’s capabilities and development plans including BUD Cargo City.

    “Budapest Airport is right on track to becoming the main cargo hub for China in the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region,” said Rene Droese, chief property and cargo officer, BUD, speaking at the conference.

    “In the last few years the e-commerce market in CEE has increased to 80 billion EUR per annum, and from its central location, BUD can supply the entire region.”

    "The newly launched Shanghai Airlines-operated direct flight between Shanghai and Budapest and its cargo capacity is a serious advantage for Hungary, which comes at the best possible time to gravitate the ever growing e-commerce business into the CEE region,” said Szilard Bolla, Consul General, Consulate General of Hungary in Shanghai.

    “We have all the good reasons to believe that further flights and related logistics investment will follow from China and from the Asia Pacific region."

    BUD’s connections to China have increased this year with a new freighter flight operated by Cargolux to Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport (CGO), and a new belly cargo connection between BUD and PVG was opened this June.

    Budapest Airport signs MoU with two major Chinese hubs

    “Budapest Airport is set to become the ideal e-commerce environment for Chinese trade, and with BUD Cargo City opening this November, we will not only be supporting growth in the air cargo industry at large, but helping to meet regional demand for Chinese imports and exports,” said Droese.

    BUD Cargo City will become Budapest Airport’s dedicated freight terminal which will include warehousing space and a forwarder building measuring 32,800 m2.

    A 32,000 m2 concrete apron will expand the airport’s capacity for processing cargo with two additional parking positions for the simultaneous handling of two Boeing B-747-8F type aircraft.

    The workshops were held in collaboration with Russian carrier AirBridgeCargo Airlines.

    Qantas Freight has added the first of two Boeing 747-8F freighter aircraft that touched down in Sydney. The second 747-8F aircraft will enter service later this week.

    Each aircraft offers 20 per cent more freight capacity and space for seven extra cargo pallets compared to the 747-400F. The 747-8’s iconic nose door allows easier loading of oversized cargo and helps achieve faster turnaround times.

    “More capacity and better reliability means we can continue to deliver for our customers in Australia and around the globe. These aircraft have a far better environmental footprint, producing less carbon emissions and offering greater efficiency, something that we know is really important to our customers," said Paul Jones, executive manager, Qantas Freight.

    Atlas Air will operate the freighters on behalf of Qantas. The two freighters will operate between Australia, China and the USA with additional routes currently being explored.

    While the aircraft will be painted in Atlas Air livery, the Qantas Freight logo will be displayed on either side of the nose and underneath the freighters’ nose cargo door.

    Michael Steen, executive vice president and chief commercial officer for Atlas Air Worldwide, said the company is delighted that Qantas Freight have extended their long-term relationship and partnership with Atlas Air.

    Earlier this month, Qantas renewed a seven-year agreement valued at over $1 billion with Australia Post to support the growing demand for parcels. Qantas will also introduce three Airbus A321P2Fs (Passenger to Freighter) to the freighter network used for Australia Post.

    Poland’s Port of Gdansk Authority (PGA) has contracted a consulting company for the development of the Central Port in Gdansk on a public-private partnership model.

    As a complex of envisioned 6 to 8 terminals and deep-water quays used for different purposes, the Central Port in Gdansk is the largest planned maritime investment in Europe, according to the port authority.

    In May this year, PGA presented the final concept of this investment.

    Approximately 410 hectares of seaside land are to be used to operate terminals of various types, including areas for containers, passengers, offshore operations, LNG or shipbuilding facilities.

    “We believe that the construction of such a complex infrastructure must respond to market demands. We want private investors to decide which terminals should be located here,” Lukasz Greinke, President of the PGA, said.

    “On the other hand, we want to provide our future business partners and ourselves a professional project consultancy for this task.”

    DS Consulting will cooperate with the PGA for over four years.

    During this period, the company will support the port authority in talks with potential partners and also in preparing applications for financing, creating documentation for contracts in public-private partnership with individual contractors.

    As part of the agreement, DS Consulting will carry out preliminary analyses (including the feasibility study) and will provide constant consultancy for transactions, covering economic, financial, market, technical and legal issues.

    The advancement of Central Port project follows a record-breaking half-year result achieved by the Port of Gdansk.

    In the first six months of 2019, the port moved 27.3 million tonnes of goods, a 9 percent increase compared to the corresponding period in 2018.

    What is more, the port authority noted it was getting closer to St. Petersburg, the largest container port in the Baltic Sea at the moment.

    Gdansk would need to handle 130,000 TEU in order to catch up with the Russian port, the authority said.

    Port of Gdansk’s development plans assume that the transshipment dynamics would increase even further in the coming years, mainly due to the redevelopment of the existing areas and the Central Port project.

    The investment will make it possible for the Polish port to handle up to 100 million tonnes a year.
