Malaysian freighter carrier Raya Airways has appointed Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) as its ground handler in Hong Kong.

The airline operates five times weekly between Hong Kong and its home base of Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Subang, utilising a Boeing 767F. This provides capacity for contracted integrator traffic, supplemented with general cargo outbound, and perishables inbound.

Hactl is providing Raya Airways with a one-stop service including ramp handling, terminal handling and documentation.

Raya Airways’ commercial director, Francis Antony said: “We are delighted to entrust our entire Hong Kong cargo handling operation to Hactl. Their renowned efficiency and comprehensive capabilities will provide strong support in our drive to offer the very best possible customer experience.”

Hactl executive director, Vivien Lau said: “We warmly welcome Raya Airways to the Hactl family. Their direct services to Subang are a valuable addition to our portfolio, providing interesting new interline opportunities, and enabling Hong Kong’s forwarder community to reach yet another global destination direct via Hactl.

As the designated national cargo carrier of Malaysia, Raya Airways has access to all the bilateral traffic rights provided for by the Malaysian government. Raya Airways also offers ad hoc charters in addition to its scheduled flights, with a fleet comprising Boeing 767, 757 and 737 freighters.
