Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals (Hactl, which handles close to 80% of the cargo at Hong Kong International Airport) reported record volume last month.

This is also an all-time record for the first-half of a year, well up from the 1.28 million tonnes handled in 1H08.

The airport’s other major handler, Asia Airfreight Terminal, also reported an amazing surge, with its June handle up 56% over June 2009, and its first-half handle up 51% over 1H09.
