International Airport Review
Bournemouth Airport has become the fastest developing cargo airport in the UK, with the official launch of Cargo First, its dedicated cargo handling service.
From a standing start with almost no cargo in April 2020, Bournemouth Airport (BOH) will see 20,000 tonnes of throughput by the end of March 2022, which makes it the fastest growing UK cargo hub based on 2020 statistics, and on the verge of breaking into the UK’s top 10 busiest cargo airports. The airport is playing a central role in enabling commercial exports from the UK to the U.S. with European Cargo Limited, which now operates a fleet of wide body cargo aircraft. It also provided relief during the COVID-19 pandemic, bringing in hundreds of millions of items of PPE and test kits to the UK.
