New World First Bus
Second-hand Buses from HACTL
[ Back to NWFB > HKBEC > ]

In the past, Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminal Limited ("HACTL") operated a fleet of 6 buses for the feeder bus services between the "Super Terminal 1" in the Airport and MTR Tung Chung Station for their employees. These 6 buses were 12 metres in length, 4 of them were Dennis Dragons with Duple Metsec bodies and the rest 2 were Volvo Olympians with Plaxton (Northern Counties) bodies. Their appearances and specifications were very similar to those of Citybus. They were allocated 1-6 as fleet numbers respectively. HACTL later decided to close the operations and outsourced this service to a third party. The 6 buses were then sold to New World First Bus ("NWFB").

NWFB allocated DA93-96 as fleet numbers for the Dragons, following the 92 Dennis Condors purchased from China Motor Bus ("CMB"). The Olympians, on the other hand, were allocated VA65 and 66, following the ex-CMB 62 Volvo Olympians. (The last ex-CMB Olympian in NWFB's fleet was VA63, while VA62 and 64 were sold to Citybus by CMB.)
