Wilson Kwong, chief executive, Hactl, commented: “We are very proud that we have once again beaten our record for freighter handling in a single day. To have successfully processed 104 widebody freighters in just 24 hours is a clear illustration of the immense scale of our operations and resources.
“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.”
