Good to see Pearson growing again but it will need many years of solid growth to get back into the top 20.

And if next year it keeps the same 15% or even 10%, it can jump in front of Paris, which means #4 globally.
In 3-4 years it could even exceed New York, if the 3rd Istanbul airport is built in time.

After that, probably intercontinental traffic will be polarised between London, Istanbul (and Dubai, Shanghai and Tokyo or Seoul): London as a hub to the New World (Americas), Istanbul as a hub to the Old World (Asia, Africa, Europe), both serving major cities in Europe and in the world.

Frankfurt/Hahn is hardly an airport of Frankfurt. It's 125km away from Frankfurt. They only use that name to fool people into thinking that they're flying out of Frankfurt (until they realize that they have to take a 1,5 hour long drive from Frankfurt downtown).

That's a similar case with Stockholm Skavsta Airport too where it is quite distant from the city center. It reminds me of how Ryanair operates its flights, btw.

Completely. Those growth rates should lead Chengdu, Hongqiao, Shenzhen and even Kunming to join the world top 30 within a very short time.

Fast-growing Ethiopian starts huge expansion of African air cargo hub

HONG KONG — Ethiopian Airlines has begun a four-fold expansion of its air cargo terminal in Addis Ababa as Africa’s largest carrier improves the freight-handling ability of its hub to support a growing global reach.

The carrier already has 28 weekly flights to China alone, calling at Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong, but interestingly markets the route as a connection to Brazil for both cargo and passengers via its North African hub.

“Going forward, given the growing economic and people-to-people ties between Africa and China, we will expand our reach in China, Africa and Brazil with new destinations and more frequencies,” said Ethiopian Group CEO Tewolde GebreMariam.

German engineering firm Unitechnik Group has been contracted to expand the current terminal at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport that they built in 2006. At a cost of $98 million, the new facility will have an annual capacity of more than 600,000 tons.

Once the new terminal is operational, planning will begin on another phase that will increase capacity to 1.2 million tons a year, far and away the largest cargo terminal in Africa and one of the biggest in the world.

According to Global Construction Review, the expanded terminal will be geared to Ethiopia’s economy that is still predominantly agricultural with a significant temperature controlled storage area.

Apart from the locally-generated perishables, Addis Ababa is also a key transshipment point — the largest in Africa — but its location places the airport in direct competition with the booming Middle East hubs of Dubai in the UAE, Doha in Qatar and the dual Saudi hubs of Jeddah and Riyadh.

The design will include an automated, high-bay racking system with four elevating transfer vehicles to increase the speed of loading and unloading.

Funding for the scheme was obtained by Ethiopian Airlines from the KfW IPEX-Bank, a specialist financier to the German export industry, and Agence Française de Développement, which offers soft loans to African development projects, wrote Global Construction Review.

Work on the terminal will proceed in parallel with a $300m expansion to the passenger handling capacity of the airport, currently being undertaken by the China Communication Construction Company, designed to raise throughput to 20 million people a year.

Ethiopian Airlines operates the youngest fleet in Africa with an average of less than seven years. In addition to its Boeing 777-200 long range freighters, the modern fleet of wide bodies gives the carrier a vast amount of belly hold cargo space.

Ethiopian currently serves 83 international destinations across five continents with over 200 daily departures. Last year the International Air Transport Association (IATA) ranked the carrier as the largest airline in Africa in both revenue and profit.

The carrier is placing a strong emphasis on building its cargo network, and GebreMariam said Ethiopian Cargo Services was the second largest strategic business unit. It is handling 200,000 tons of cargo a year and flies to 24 freighter destinations in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Europe using eight dedicated freighters, including B777-200 LRF, the MD-11F aircraft and B757F.

By 2025, Ethiopian Cargo plans to uplift over 800,000 tons a year by operating to 37 freighter destinations across five continents using 20 dedicated cargo aircraft.

“In line with our Vision 2025 strategic road map, we have been investing in all four pillars of our vision. We have acquired the best freighter aircraft in the world, are expanding our cargo destinations across the globe, building one of the largest cargo terminals in the world with 1.2 million annual capacity, and automating our entire cargo business process with the aim of providing one of the most efficient air cargo services within, to and from Africa,” GebreMariam said.

What orders do you speculate will be announced next week at Le Bourget (especially for wide bodies)?

I don't think there will be many big orders as it looks like most of the big carriers have placed big orders in recent years.

What I can think of are:
- Qantas 787-9 firm-up (highly likely)
- Ethiopian: there has been rumors about Ethiopian evaluating the 777X and the A350-1000 (likely)
- South African Airways: I don't know the political situation right now but SAA is the largest carrier the most in need of a fleet renewal (likely)
- Singapore Airlines: Replacement for both 777-300ER and a380, maybe they are waiting for Airbus' decision abt the a380neo (less likely)
- Chinese carriers: they are the ones with not so much order (especially for the new gena aircraft) of all big markets so maybe we will see them order more (don't really know the likeliness of this)

Plus most probably some top-up orders like Finnair did recently for the a350-900.

The number of airports are increasing day by day as well as the accidents are also increasing.

Hongqiao is approaching its capacity limit and they have no room to expand, so I seriously doubt that it will ever become a Top30 airport. With CTU, SZX and KMG however it is only a matter of time until they join the Top30.

I think Pu Dong was built for that additional capacity as Hongqiao is located much closer to Shanghai's city center.
