Protests at Hong Kong airport continue to disrupt cargo operations


According to an article published by Air Cargo News, The Hong Kong Association of Freight Forwarding and Logistics (HAFFA) warned the recent disruption to operations at Hong Kong International Airport could greatly affect the territory.


The protests in Hong Kong have interrupted cargo operations. HAFFA worries that this could deteriorate Hong Kong's reputation as the world's busiest cargo airport.


Hundreds of flights were grounded on Monday and Tuesday due to protesters crowding terminal areas. Freighter services were unaffected, but belly cargo shipments in passenger planes were greatly impacted. Read the full article here.


Protests in response to the Chinese extradition bill have been ongoing for two months. If these disruptions continue then companies can expect to see further cargo delays in the region.
