In the first four months of fiscal 2011, which started April 1, ANA’s international cargo volume totaled 169,251 tons, up 6.2 percent from the same period last year. The carrier’s domestic cargo volume in the April-July period equaled 154,821 tons, up 1.4 percent from a year earlier.
Much of the increase in ANA’s cargo volume came as the carrier grabbed market share from its struggling domestic rival, Japan Airlines. ANA currently handles more passengers and cargo than JAL.
