Singapore Airlines: “Overall cargo traffic (measured in freight-tonne-kilometres) was 12.8% lower than the same period the previous year, while cargo capacity decreased by 8.5%. All regions were affected by the seasonal slowing of airfreight activities due to the Lunar New Year holidays which was in January this year compared to February in 2011.” Source: Company statement, 15-Feb-2012.
