AirAsia cargo handling Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal Cathay Pacific Services Limited CPSL


Cathay Pacific Services Limited (CPSL) has announced its appointment as handling agent for AirAsia’s cargo operations and documentation at the Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal. Operations have been running smoothly since CPSL began providing services for AirAsia on 15 May 2014.

 Chief executive officer of AirAsia, Aireen Omar said: “We are fastidious about cost efficiency and competency in every aspect of our operations, and are glad to find a compatible partner like CPSL which recognises our operational needs and has a good understanding of our business model.

 ”Cargo is one of the important revenue streams for AirAsia and it is crucial to have a partner which adds more value to our services. What we do is challenge the conventional perception that Low Cost Carriers (LCCs) are unsuitable for cargo, due to the quick turnaround time. With CPSL on board, we look forward to quashing that perception further and changing the face of the cargo industry.”
