UAE to become world’s third largest air cargo market by 2040
The UAE is set to become the world’s third largest air cargo market globally by 2040.
That’s according to the Dubai Media Office, citing a report by Airports Council International.
It follows China, and together the two countries are projected to bring in a fifth of the estimated 203.4 million tonnes of global air cargo volumes by 2040.
At number one, the United States is expected to account for 20 per cent of all air cargo transportation.
The report also says the Emirates will become the world’s fourth fastest-growing country for passengers in 22 years.
