Virgin Atlantic says e-commerce to drive HK-Sydney cargo sales


Virgin Atlantic Cargo is expecting e-commerce demand to help fill the bellies of new Virgin Australia flights between Hong Kong and Sydney, reports London's Air Cargo News.
The flights, operating A330s, offer 15-20 tonnes of capacity. Virgin Atlantic will market the space under the international long-haul sales and management agreement between the two airlines.
"Sydney-Hong Kong is a route we know very well having operated it ourselves until mid-2014 so we are delighted to be back in this market and able to offer customers more choice on a route that generates high volumes in both directions," said Virgin Atlantic Cargo managing director Dominic Kennedy.
"The big shift in the market since 2014 is the significant rise of e-commerce volumes driven by the growth of online shopping in Australia and China. The launch of this important new route is coming at a prime time for air cargo capacity demand to and from Australia," he said.
E-commerce shipments from China to Australia have boosted load factors from Hong Kong to Melbourne to close to 90 per cent and Virgin Atlantic expects to see similar volumes into Sydney. From Australia, regular cargo will include courier traffic, perishables, milk powder and vitamins.
