Delta Cargo yields fall, but volumes rise
Atlanta-Based Delta Air Lines saw its freight-related revenue fall by US$2 million, or 1 percent year-on-year, during the April - June quarter.
Delta Cargo noted that lower yields suffered over the three months had been offset by higher volumes.
These mixed freight results in part reflected those of parent carrier Delta, whose operating revenue rose by 6 percent year-on-year but which still sustained a net loss after special items had been taken into account.
Delta president Ed Bastian said that revenue performance had been “among the best in the industry”, while CEO Richard Anderson highlighted “solid profit in this quarter (excluding special items)”.
