(09 May 2021) Hong Kong Air Cargo (HKAC) has received approval from the Air Transport Licensing Authority (ATLA) to operate scheduled cargo flights to nine new destinations.
The airline applied to add Chennai, Tokyo, Manila, Jakarta, Delhi, Sydney, Melbourne, Liege and Milan as scheduled service destinations in December 2020.
The new routes will be gradually introduced utilising the current fleet of five Airbus A330-200F aircraft.
Mr William Chan, Director of Government and Public Affairs, said, “This marks a significant milestone in Hong Kong Air Cargo’s journey. Over the years, we have strived to do our best and serve the community of Hong Kong. The pandemic has been a challenging time globally, and the demand for the transportation of cargo has continued to increase. We are grateful for the approval for these new routes and the opportunity to grow with Hong Kong.”
The airline had previously been operating charter flights to most of the nine destinations.
