AHK has been busy gearing up.....

Air Hong Kong has been busy gearing up - for a well needed boost in regional air freight capacity - with the dry-lease of three Boeing 747-400 BCFs from Cathay Pacific Airways.

All three BCF aircraft will be painted in AHK's distinctive yellow and white livery.

The first BCF aircraft began operations on 29 May 2011 - carrying DHL express consignments - and some CX general freight - on the key Hong Kong/Singapore vv route.

The second BCF aircraft will begin operations in early July 2011 on the Hong Kong/ Narita vv route, while the third BCF aircraft will enter service early September 2011 and operate Hong Kong/Pudong (Shanghai) vv.

The extra capacity will help AHK consolidate its position on these three key routes and will - at the same time - free up AHK Airbus A300-600F's allowing the company to upgrade other sectors currently being operated by wet-leased aircraft.

AHK's fleet of eight A300-600F's is currently being supplemented by two wet-leased Boeing 727Fs from Transmile, flying Hong Kong/Manila vv and Hong Kong/  Beijing vv.

AHK is actively looking at opportunities to add frequencies and extend its network, which currently numbers 12 destinations including Hong Kong.
