The Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) saw cargo traffic decline marginally for March 2012 compared to the same period a year ago.

Cargo volume dropped by 0.4 percent to 368,000 tonnes last month, which HKIA mainly attributed to the 4.5 percent year-on-year drop in imports.

Exports registered growth of 3 percent while transshipments decreased by 3 percent compared to the same month last year. During the month, cargo throughput to and from Southeast Asia outperformed other key regions, HKIA said in a statement on April 22.

In the first quarter of 2012, cargo volume fell 1.5 percent to 930,000 tonnes, while on a rolling 12-month basis, cargo volume recorded a drop of 5.9 percent in the same period, amounting to 3.9 million tonnes.
