Hactl handles Vietjet

Fast expanding Vietnamese new-generation carrier VietJet has appointed Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd (Hactl) – Hong Kong’s largest independent cargo handler – to provide cargo terminal operations for its newly-launched flights between Ho Chi Minh City and Hong Kong.

The daily services are operated with A320 aircraft from the airline’s young fleet of 42 A320 and A321 aircraft.

In the first nine months of 2016, Vietnam was Hong Kong’s fifth largest export market, and major export commodities included telecom equipment, meat products and electronic components. Imports from Vietnam grew 9.0% in the same period; major import items included electronic components, telecom equipment and footwear.

Says Vietjet’s Vice President Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh, “Hong Kong is a very important market for Vietnam, and also a key step in our airline’s development. We look forward to playing our part in facilitating increased trade on this route.”

Adds Hactl Chief Executive Mark Whitehead: “We congratulate Vietjet on the launch of this exciting new service to Ho Chi Minh, which provides access to an important destination for our customers.”

VietJet began operations in 2011, flying from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi. It has since expanded its network to include 37 domestic and 23 international destinations. The airline carried its 35 millionth passenger five years after its launch.
