Virgin Atlantic Cargo has extended its contract with Hong Kong cargo handler Hactl for a further five years.

The airline said the deal meant customers can benefit from Hactl’s “3,500 Container Storage System positions, 10,000 Box Storage System positions and a comprehensive range of specialised cargo handling facilities to cater for all cargo types, including temperature-controlled products”.

The news comes as Virgin Atlantic Cargo has increased services to Hong Kong to eight rotations per week in July.

The additional services will add 400 tonnes of capacity for the month, on the airline’s Boeing 787-9 aircraft serving Hong Kong as well as a number on onward destinations.

Dominic Kennedy, managing director of cargo at Virgin Atlantic said: “We welcome the extension of our contract with much loved partners with Hactl, and would especially like to thank them for their support following Virgin Atlantic Cargo’s busiest ever operational period in 2020. We look forward to the next 5 years and our continued joint efforts, combining industry leading customer service and technology to provide our essential cargo offering to customers across the globe.”
