Hong Kong Air Cargo Expresses Support for Import and Export (Amendment) Bill 2023 (English Version only)
Image : Mr Robert Sham, Manager of Government and Public Affairs

Hong Kong Air Cargo, a Hong Kong-based all-cargo airline, has expressed its support for the government’s efforts to expedite the amendment of the Import and Export (Amendment) Bill 2023. On May 19, Mr Robert Sham, Manager of Government and Public Affairs, represented the airline at the Legislative Council’s meetings for the bill.

Recent government records indicate a 16.4% decline in cargo volume at Hong Kong Airport in 2022 compared to the previous year. The prohibition on transit for alternative tobacco products through Hong Kong has resulted in significant losses for the aviation industry. This situation adversely affects Hong Kong’s status as an international aviation hub and contradicts the objectives outlined in the National 14th Five-Year Plan for the Hong Kong aviation industry.

Hong Kong Air Cargo is confident that the stringent security measures implemented by the customs and logistics industry can effectively prevent the smuggling of alternative tobacco products into the market. The airline urges the Legislative Council to pass the amendment promptly.

Hong Kong Air Cargo Receives Green Light For Nine New Routes
Blue dot line shows the newly approved routes

7th May 2021 – Hong Kong Air Cargo are delighted to announce that they have received approval from the Air Transport Licensing Authority (ATLA) to operate scheduled cargo flights to nine (9) new routes.

In December 2020, Hong Kong Air Cargo (HKAC) formally submitted applications to add Chennai, Tokyo, Manila, Jakarta, Delhi, Sydney, Melbourne, Liege and Milan as scheduled service destinations. The airline previously operated chartered services to most of these cities regularly and established a solid foundation in preparation for the new services. The newly received ATLA licence approvals will allow Hong Kong Air Cargo to plan, forecast and service customers and the cities with confidence.

With the granting of the ATLA licences, the airline will soon commence applying for the other necessary approvals for the new services. The new routes will be gradually introduced utilising the existing fleet, and HKAC will continuously review its resources input if market demand continues to dictate.

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”.

Hong Kong Air Cargo currently operates a fleet of five Airbus A330-200 freighters and have recently welcomed new pilot recruits.

Hong Kong Air Cargo seeks to increase cockpit crew numbers
Interview is in progress

Hong Kong Air Cargo have embarked on a substantial recruitment drive this week to increase their cockpit crew head count by 14 percent.

The exercise which aims to engage both First Officers and Captains has unsurprisingly had no shortage of applications. The selection committee now has the challenge to shot list candidates and make their final decision once candidates have undergone simulator sessions.

This is good news for local Hong Kong pilots at a time when the aviation world continues to suffer from the pandemic and indeed good news for Hong Kong as a cargo hub.

Whilst Covid-19 has decimated passenger flights, cargo flights have largely seen an increase in demand. This was true throughout 2020 and is showing strong figures for the first quarter of 2021. This is in part due the decreased number of passenger flights and a shortage of belly capacity.

Mr William Chan, Director Government and Public Affairs, Hong Kong Air Cargo said
“We submitted applications for 9 new routes several months ago and we are hopeful that we will soon receive approval. We need to be ready to embrace these new challenges. There is a wealth of experienced and professional pilots in Hong Kong right now and it makes sense to take advantage of the situation, we look forward to welcoming the new recruits to Hong Kong Air Cargo ‘.

Hong Kong Air Cargo is pleased to announce the commencement of their partnership with Cainiao Smart Logistics Network.

 

Founded by the Alibaba-led consortium in China, Cainiao Smart Logistics Network is a logistics platform with extensive global network that promises swift delivery worldwide.

 

Air cargo demand for the first quarter of 2021 continues to remain strong and the Covid-19 pandemic created a number of supply and demand issues primarily as a result of the lack of passenger cargo belly capacity. Whilst the passenger market has declined, the cargo market has strengthened.  In 2020, Hong Kong Air Cargo carried a total of 238,000 tonnes cargo which represents a 8.1 per cent increase compared to 2019.

 

Mr Jeffrey Zhang, Director, Commercial, Hong Kong Air Cargo said, “This is a very exciting day for Hong Kong Air Cargo. It has always been our goal to establish Hong Kong as an express eCommerce hub and this partnership is most definitely a step in the right direction. We are proud to partner with Cainiao.”

 

General Manager Cainiao Global Supply Chain, Mr. James Zhao said, “As one of the fastest growing eCommerce markets in the world, Southeast Asia is projected to achieve a 23 per cent CAGR to reach US$172 billion in 2025[1]. With more cross-border eCommerce goods moving from Mainland China to Southeast Asia, the launch of cargo flights via Cainiao eHub will allow us to create a seamless logistics network that will improve efficiency and reduce

 

shipping time. The partnership with Hong Kong Air Cargo will further safeguard air freight stability and cost efficiency to benefit merchants and consumers in the region.

Hong Kong Air Cargo looks to expand its route network
HKC looks to expend its route network

09 December 2020 – As Covid-19 continues to ravage the global aviation sector it’s not all doom and gloom. Whilst air travel recovery stalls, the demand for cargo strengthens. However, the lack of passenger fleet belly capacity has created serious cargo shortages and as the peak season rapidly approaches the biggest problem is lack of capacity. 

 

The increased demand for cargo capacity especially in Southeast Asia and with the desire to keep cargo on the move, Hong Kong Air Cargo (HKC) has positioned itself as a forerunner for a plethora of additional routes.

 

Export orders are a good indicator of the strength of demand for cargo services and manufactures are dealing with exceptionally high volumes requiring additional capacity in and out of Hong Kong.

 

HKC currently operates five Airbus A330’s aircraft to 12 scheduled destinations and increasingly also operates several weekly charter services. The load factor on all flights averages between 70 – 80% and is forecast to continue to grow especially with the probability and possibility of a vaccine and the challenge of distribution.

HKC would like to continue to play a significant role keeping Hong Kong cargo on the move. The airline has submitted applications for permission to add 9 destinations to its scheduled timetable and is hopeful that the licences will be granted.

Mr Willian Chan Director Government and Public Affairs, Hong Kong Air Cargo said, “We have seen a sharp rise in demand for cargo capacity in and out of Hong Kong. It is encouraging to see the support for Hong Kong and efforts being rewarded. We have a world-class international airport and cargo facility, we are all ready to do our bit to keep Hong Kong cargo on the move”.

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.

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.
