Hactl praises Hong Kong’s third runway bid
01 / 06 / 2012
MAJOR air cargo handler Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals (Hactl) throws its weight behind Hong Kong International Airport’s (China) plan to build a third runway.
A consultation period involving members of the public and other stakeholders is set to get under way following an assessment carried out by the airport.
Mark Whitehead, Hactl’s managing director, states: "It is clear that Hong Kong’s future as a world class airline hub relies heavily on its ability to continue satisfying the future needs of passengers, exporters, importers and airlines.
"We believe the two-year process that has been initiated by the airport will ensure that every aspect of the expansions’ potential impact is fully considered, and that the project will then be conducted at every stage in a way that mitigates and minimises its effect."
