Mr. Alexis Lapot, Senior Cargo Manager of Liege Airport expressed “Being the home of an all-cargo airline like Hong Kong Air Cargo makes us proud and honored. The choice of Liege Airport demonstrates once further its prominence in the e-commerce industry. The addition of a Hong Kong airline to the roster of carriers operating scheduled flights between the two airports is the cherry on top for us at LGG.“
