Hong Kong start-up carrier GBA entrusts Hactl with its cargo handling


New start-up Greater Bay Airlines (GBA) has appointed Hactl as cargo ground handler at its Hong Kong home base.

The carrier received its Air Operator’s Certificate on 8th October 2021, after successfully proving flights to and from Bangkok. GBA can now commence both passenger and cargo charter flights using its B737-800 fleet, which will be expanded to 7 aircraft by the end of 2022, and more than 30 by 2026. GBA has applied for an Air Transport Licence for a total of 104 destinations across the region.

Aviation industry veteran Algernon Yau leads GBA as its Chief Executive Officer. Yau has over 40 years of experience in top management at Cathay Pacific Group.

Says Algernon Yau: “We are delighted to be working with Hactl as the cargo handling partner for our new services. Their focus on hyper-efficiency through innovation and automation, as well as their strong environmental credentials, are an excellent fit with our business model and will help us to achieve our own ambitions.”

Adds Hactl Chief Executive Wilson Kwong: “The launch of Greater Bay Airlines is a clear sign of the positivity and indomitable spirit of Hong Kong’s aviation sector, which is already looking well beyond current challenges to a brighter long-term future. We wish Algernon and his team every success with their ambitious plans and are very proud to have been entrusted to support this exciting new venture.”
