The latest figures from Airports Council International (ACI) Europe show that cargo volumes were down by 2.2% in May.
European Union (EU) airports saw freight traffic fall by 2.3% while non-EU ones registered a 1.6% decline.
The only positive that can be drawn from the update is that the fall is slightly better than the 2.6% decline recorded over the first five months of the year.
Of the top 10 European airports for freight, only Madrid (4.5%), Liege (3.7%), Paris CDG (3.1%) and Frankfurt (0.6%) reported increases in freight traffic.
