Hactl adds Southern Air to ramp handling business
28 / 10 / 2019
Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd (Hactl) has won the contract to provide ramp handling for US-based freighter operator Southern Air.
Southern Air – a wholly-owned subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings – operates 21 rotations per week through Hong Kong, serving Anchorage, Cincinnati, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Leipzig, Milan, Sharjah, Bahrain and Seoul.
All Southern Air Hong Kong services use B777 freighters, most of whose space is allocated to DHL Express.
Hactl executive director Vivien Lau said: “We are very pleased to extend our responsibilities for Southern Air to include ramp operations. This enables us to provide them with the enhanced efficiency of a seamless terminal- and ramp-handling service – just as we now do for over 40 other freighter operators in Hong Kong.”
Freighter ramp handling is one of the fastest-growing aspects of Hactl’s business; customers for the service include all five of the express and integrator carriers operating into Hong Kong.
