Eva Air ends CPSL intermezzo
After three years at Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal, which is operated by Cathay Pacific Services (CPSL), Eva Air has appointed Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals (Hactl) as its handling agent. Hactl will once again provide all cargo handling services for the airline’s operations from Hong Kong, which include over 60 passenger and eight widebody freighter flights per week.
The Taiwanese carrier also plans to use the Superlink China Direct road feeder services provided by the Hactl subsidiary Hacis, to extend its catchment to include the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region. That network will shortly be extended with the opening of a ninth depot in the western PRD and, in conjunction with the opening of the Hong Kong - Zhuhai - Macao Bridge, this will reduce trans-PRD transit times by two thirds.
