Indian belly carrier IndiGo has selected Asia Airfreight Terminal (AAT) as its cargo handler in Hong Kong.

The low-cost airline is headquartered in Gurgaon, India and the the largest Indian airline in terms of passenger numbers carried and fleet size.

IndiGo launched a seven times weekly Airbus A320 passenger flight between Bengaluru (formally known as Bangalore) and Hong Kong on 11 December 2018.

Bengaluru is one of the fastest growing cities located in the southwest state of Karnataka in India and is the nation’s centre for information technology.

AAT general manager, Kuah Boon Kiam said: “We warmly welcome IndiGo to Hong Kong and to AAT.  Our companies have a lot in common with our mutual focus on reliability and value to the customer.

“Over the years, AAT has built up a strong reputation for handling airlines from India, and we will extend our fullest cooperation to IndiGo as they build up their cargo business in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta region.”
