Hactl Handles New SW Italia Freighter for Sto Express

Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd (Hactl) has been appointed to handle a new weekly B747-8F service for SW Italia.

The new flight – which routes from Hong Kong to Prague – is for the exclusive use of Sto Express, one of the major Chinese express operators. The aircraft is operating in Sto Express livery, and is thought to be the first regular freighter operation to Europe for any Chinese express carrier.

Hactl Chief Executive, Mark Whitehead said: “We are delighted to extend our relationship with SW Italia to include this new operation, which clearly signals the growing role of the mainstream airfreight industry in e-commerce logistics.”
