Hactl scoops Vietjet deal for new Hong Kong service

VietJet has appointed Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals (Hactl) to provide cargo terminal services for new flights being launched between Ho Chi Minh City and Hong Kong.
The daily services will be operated using Airbus A320 aircraft and come on the back of growing demand between Hong Kong and Vietnam.
Hactl said that in the first nine months of 2016, Vietnam was Hong Kong’s fifth largest export market, and major export commodities included telecom equipment, meat products and electronic components.
Imports from Vietnam grew 9% in the same period; major import items included electronic components, telecom equipment and footwear.
Vietjet’s vice president Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh said: “Hong Kong is a very important market for Vietnam, and also a key step in our airline’s development. We look forward to playing our part in facilitating increased trade on this route.”
VietJet launched services in 2011 and today offers 37 domestic and 23 international routes with its fleet of 42 A320 and A321 aircraft
