Upgrades to Hactl’s IT system, notably a new airside management app means ramp efficiency and productivity has increased.

Of the 104 freighters, 88 were fully handled by Hactl, both on the ramp and in its SuperTerminal 1 facility.

Wilson Kwong, chief executive of Hactl says: “Recent new business wins, together with growth in demand ahead of Thanksgiving and Christmas, have come together to achieve this impressive result. But it’s once again the remarkable team I am so proud to lead, which pulled out all the stops around the clock, to ensure that every aircraft successfully maintained its tight turnaround schedule.”
