Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) – an independent cargo handler – has been awarded the contract to provide ramp handling for Kentucky (USA)-based freighter operator Southern Air Inc.
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 Boeing 777 freighters, most of whose space is allocated to DHL Express.
Hactl executive director, Vivien Lau, commented: “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.”
