The sustained grounding of many international passenger flights continues to focus demand on dedicated freighters although “preighters” are still in widespread use. The number of flights performed with a B747 freighter in March was 34% higher than in February, as the freight carried on this type increased by 48%. The corresponding figures for two other freighters: for the B777-F this was measured at 24% respectively, a 28% increase, and for the A330F an 18% growth in flight numbers and 30% in cargo carried was recorded. The passenger aircraft carrying by far the most freight, the B777 lost 21% in freight carried.
