Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) is pleased to welcome East Star Airlines Company Limited (East Star Airlines) as its new customer. The carrier launched its inaugural flight on 22 November, starting its daily flight between Wuhan, China and Hong Kong. The services rendered to East Star Airlines include physical cargo handling and air cargo documentation handling.
Wuhan is the first city in China to adopt the open sky policy. In July 2007, East Star Airlines, with its headquarters in Wuhan, was granted the rights to operate international service and became the first privately owned Chinese airline to be granted the permission to operate international flights.
Ms. Lilian Chan, General Manager, Marketing and Customer Service of Hactl said, "We warmly welcome East Star Airlines, and we congratulate the carrier to begin operating flights to Hong Kong and other international destinations, signifying the first privately owned Chinese airline reaching regions beyond Mainland China. As the leading air cargo terminal, Hactl is dedicated to providing world-class cargo handling solutions to East Star Airlines, supporting the carrier’s future growth worldwide.”
Mr Adrian Tang, General Manager, Representative Office of Hong Kong and Macau, of East Star Airlines said, “It is exciting for our airlines to run flight services outside Mainland China and we are pleased to start our daily flight service between Wuhan and Hong Kong. We foresee massive opportunities for our business growth in the region, especially when all Mainland cities are expected to adopt the open sky policies by 2010. East Star Airlines is happy to be partnering with Hactl, which delivers highly efficient, reliable and professional cargo handling services, and we are confident that Hactl would live up to our expectations and cater for our cargo needs arising from our business expansion.”
