Most significant and innovative conception for the aviation industry during the pandemic was the conversion of aircrafts from Passenger to Cargo(P2C) thus bringing in more capacity to cater to fast changing customer trends and growing demand for e-commerce- the agile driver for our cargo industry.

1) How do you perceive Air cargo’ growth in times to come? Will it be on the same growth trajectory (during pandemic) or will it slow down?
Growth is a Marathon , not a Sprint!!
Even under the shadow of increasing economic uncertainty ,yo-yo swings due to the pandemic and other rattling factors such as the spike in fuel costs , the Russia -Ukraine war and lockdowns in China , we see an Upward & Uptick in Cargo Volumes & Global Air Cargo Market is poised to scale further as we progress through 2022,
Yes the yields have softened & gone luke warm this summer with a somewhat plateaued growth graph but as we inch closer to the third quarter the elevation in rates is to bounce back
2) What are the vital trends that will shape the air cargo industry post covid?
Necessity is Mother of all Inventions !!

The newest kids on the block are going to be narrow bodied converted freighters into the fleet for many airlines , besides of course as Boeing continues to serve the growing demand for cargo jets
