Hong Kong Air Cargo to expand its wings to ground transportation & logistics services

Yesterday, Hong Kong Air Cargo took great pride in announcing the commencement of Hong Kong Air Cargo Logistics, a fully-fledged ground transportation provider for the local Hong Kong market working in tandem with the Cargo carrier. Hong Kong Air Cargo Logistics aims to develop Hong Kong into a cargo transportation hub across the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao, Greater Bay Area.

Since its establishment in 2017, Hong Kong Air Cargo has expanded its route network to cover 6 destinations in the region in less than a year. The carrier currently operates cargo services from Hong Kong to Bangkok, Dhaka, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore and Taipei. Additionally, they are the general sales agent of Hong Kong Airline’s cargo business. The all-cargo destinations of Hong Kong Airlines include Shanghai, Zhengzhou, Tianjin, Hangzhou, Dhaka, Almaty and Istanbul.

As the country implements new cross-border network opportunities brought by the implementation of the “Belt and Road Initiative”, “Integrated Development in the Greater Bay Area” and “Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area”, Hong Kong Air Cargo looks to expand its business with the foundation of the air cargo business and aims to service customers in the Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macau Gulf regions. Designed by the Chinese Government, these initiatives provide great potential for Hong Kong to develop its all-around cargo, logistics and warehousing services in the targeted region.

Zeng Meng, Assistant Chief Executive Officer of Hong Kong Air Cargo said, “We are pleased to announce the commencement of Hong Kong Air Cargo Logistics today. Hong Kong Air Cargo has developed steadily since our establishment last year and we have seen remarkable achievements. With the completion of the Hong Kong–Zhuhai-Macao bridge, the Shenzhen-Zhongshan bridge as well as the “Belt and Road” and the “Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area” initiatives introduced by the Chinese Government, moving forward, Hong Kong Air Cargo will focus to develop a fully integrated transportation network in the Greater Bay Area including air cargo, ground transportation and warehousing services with an aim to build Hong Kong as the logistics hub.”

Hong Kong Air Cargo provides an all-round logistics and comprehensive supporting services and contributes to the success of building Hong Kong as the air cargo, ground transportation and warehousing hub in the Greater Bay Area.

This first destination in North America of HKC will be served by Boeing 747-400 wide-body cargo aircraft which leased from Atlas Air, Inc., USA.

The city of Chicago locates in the heart of north American continent which is considered as second largest business central area of USA, also known as the domestic hub of railway and aviation transportation in USA. Chicago is one of the most important culture and science education center all over the world. During the initial launching period, three flights per week between Hangzhou and Chicago are expected to contribute 20,000 tons of international cargo and mail traffic volume per year to the airport of Hangzhou. The cargo delivered mainly contains high-tech electronical products especially for mobile phones and computers, others such as garments, clothing products, devices, parts and accessories and daily commodities, etc. The inaugural flight is well reserved with 80 tons of payload so far.

Mr. Zhong Guosong, the Chairman cum CEO of Hong Kong Air Cargo, said, “We are excited to set up the first destination in the continental United States to further expand our international freight market.

Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Mr CY Leung said: “The establishment of Hong Kong Air Cargo is an important milestone in the development of Hong Kong’s aviation and logistics industries. At the end of this year, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge will be completed and, once open, will significantly shorten the time needed to travel between the Hong Kong International Airport and cities on the West Bank of the Pearl River and Guangxi, thereby expanding the Hong Kong air cargo market. To seize the opportunity to develop Hong Kong’s aviation leasing business, the Government has submitted to the Legislative Council a draft amendment to the Inland Revenue Ordinance to provide profits tax concessions to eligible aircraft lessors and leasing agents, to promote Hong Kong’s offshore aircraft leasing activities in order to enhance Hong Kong’s status as an international financial centre and aviation hub.”

“Hong Kong is one of the world’s leading logistics cities, recording the highest cargo throughput in the world over the last few years. As a shareholder, we are very pleased about the development and accomplishments of Hong Kong Airlines, and its decision to set up Hong Kong Air Cargo to support the rapid growth of the air cargo industry and the Belt and Road Initiative,” said Xin Di, Board of HNA Group Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of HNA Tourism Group. “HNA Group is very optimistic about the future of Hong Kong and will actively support the expansion of the air cargo industry and play our part in contributing to Hong Kong’s future.”

Hong Kong Air Cargo Chief Executive Officer Mr Zhong Guosong said, “We have, at last, officially obtained the Air Operator’s Certificate from the Civil Aviation Department and the Licence from the Air Transport Licensing Authority. This is the first Air Operator’s Certificate issued in Hong Kong in 12 years, and we are proud and excited about this incredible honour. At Hong Kong Air Cargo, our goal is to be rooted in Hong Kong, establish network throughout Asia, while maintaining a global vision. Reaping the benefits of China’s Belt and Road initiative, we will further implement marketing differentiation strategies to help propel Hong Kong’s air cargo industry forward.”

Hong Kong International Airport’s air cargo throughput has ranked first in the world since 2010, reaching 452,000 tonnes in 2016. The air cargo industry in Hong Kong benefits from the region’s unique geographical advantage and excellent environment for business. With the new directions offered by China’s Belt and Road initiative, the industry now faces tremendous opportunities for further development. The formation of Hong Kong Air Cargo during this exciting and opportune time means that the company now bears the great responsibility of promoting the profound development of the air cargo industry in Hong Kong.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Hong Kong Airlines, Hong Kong Air Cargo’s important milestone today is inseparable from the success of Hong Kong Airlines, and is also a part of Hong Kong Airlines’ glorious history. Established in 2006, Hong Kong Airlines has taken root in Hong Kong while maintaining a global vision, building up a fleet of 34 aircraft, a network of 36 major Asia Pacific cities and a respected reputation in just 10 years. Both the passenger traffic and cargo volume of Hong Kong Airlines rank second in the Hong Kong market.

The airline’s cargo business, in particular, has experienced consistent year-on-year growth since the airline introduced its first A332F freighter aircraft in 2010. As of 2016, the airline’s 5 cargo aircraft cover 11 freight routes and 13 destinations; in 2016, its cargo volume exceeded 327,500 tonnes, accounting for 7 percent of the Hong Kong International Airport’s overall throughput. Going forward, Hong Kong Air Cargo will integrate the needs of the cargo transportation market, gradually adding B747 and B777 wide-bodied long-haul freight aircraft into its fleet over the next 5 years until the fleet size reaches double digits. At the same time, the airline will invest in the integration of “last-mile delivery” and upgrade its cargo services from “airport to airport” to “door to door” a solution that has long been a challenge for Hong Kong cargo carriers to successfully implement.

Hong Kong Air Cargo’s future development will focus on building air, land and water cargo transport systems around the Hong Kong International Airport, further improving the cargo network in which Hong Kong sits as the hub. Above all, the airline will continue working toward the goal of being rooted in Hong Kong, establishing network throughout Asia, while having a global vision, helping Hong Kong take off toward a brighter tomorrow.

Hong Kong Air Cargo Obtains Air Operator’s Certificate and ATLA Licence
CEO of Hong Kong Air Cargo Mr. ZHONG Guosong (right hand side) just received the Air Operator’s Certificate from Captain Victor Liu Chi-yung, Deputy Director-General of Civil Aviation.

Hong Kong Air Cargo has just been granted the Air Operator’s Certificate from the Civil Aviation Department and the Licence from the Air Transport Licensing Authority. This is the first time in 12 years that a new Hong Kong carrier offering scheduled services has been granted the certificate and licence, marking a glorious milestone for Hong Kong’s aviation industry.

Hong Kong Air Cargo will introduce new aircraft and a series of supporting infrastructure in order to boost its market competitiveness. To further enhance the logistics network where Hong Kong is the hub, the airline plans to deploy B747 or B777 wide body extension cargo aircraft over the next five years, reaching a double-digit fleet size. At the same time, based on the combined needs of the logistics market, the airline will make use of its new cargo capacity to launch Asia routes to Japan and India as well as long-haul routes to Europe and America. Together with its land transport and maritime shipping services, Hong Kong Air Cargo will gradually build up its own comprehensive sea, land and air Logistics transportation system.

The Hong Kong International Airport is the world’s largest international air cargo throughput hub airport, handling 4.42 million tons of air cargo throughput in 2015. Hong Kong is able to maintain and develop its position as an international logistics hub thanks to China’s Belt and Road initiative, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Big Bay Area development plan and a series of large-scale transport infrastructure projects like the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link, and the 3-runway system at the Hong Kong International Airport. Hong Kong will further cement its position as the gateway and hub of the Pearl River Delta economic zone and continue to serve as the bridgehead for the mainland’s foreign trade and transportation.

Hong Kong Air Cargo is honoured to obtain the Air Operator’s Certificate and ATLA Licence, and will cherish the opportunity to take root in Hong Kong and, through integrating national policies, continue to expand and provide a wide range of employment opportunities, delivering benefits to the people of Hong Kong.
