@CarynLL Rich Corrado of @ATSGinc notes that while its customer @amazon is a growth outlier in e-commerce, many cargo airlines are growing their express and e-commerce business and looking to add freighters. #CargoFacts20.
@JeffreyLeeJL According to Houston Mills, VP of flight ops at @UPSAirlines , the market has shifted from about a 50-50 split between B2B and B2C shipments, to about 70-30 in favor of B2C.
@JeffreyLeeJL According to Dorothea von Boxberg, chief commercial officer of @Lufthansa_Cargo , digital bookings have seen “a huge surge.” “This year has been very good for digitization” for the carrier, which introduced an ad-hoc pricing model in late 2019.
@jrobinsuk .@Finnair are looking to make widebody and narrowbody sales “as we find the right offers in the marketplace”. Notes that with asset prices depressed values will not be “significant”. Key driver is desire to avoid maintenance costs next year.
@SEA_kauffman “Rumor of the demise of the 767 has been greatly exaggerated,” said @ATSGinc President & CEO, Corrado. There are a lot of 767 feedstock units, factory freighter production continues, GE (and P&W) continue to support engines. #CargoFacts20.
