- Air cargo in Barcelona grew 2.3% in 2014 to stand at 102,692 tonnes. The main airlines at the airport grew a little more (+3.6%). Both values were below the Spanish mean for cargo (+ 7.2%) and especially far below Madrid (+5.8%) and Zaragoza (+20.4%). Zaragoza is likely to continue to grow and reach a cargo volume similar to that of Barcelona in 2015.
- Middle Eastern companies slowed down their traffic and decreased it slightly, but maintained their dominant position. Turkish Airlines grew spectacularly with the introduction of a widebody on their route as of May 2014. With the introduction of the second widebody frequency as of May 2015 the growth of TY is likely to retain similar parameters in 2015. US routes grew strongly (especially in exports) as did direct routes with Asia. Swiss International also had remarkable growth. Aeroflot, on the other hand, decreased its traffic in the second half of the year, with the depreciation of the rouble.
