MASkargo Delivers its First Charter Flight of the Year

According to Ibrahim Mohamed Salleh, MASkargo’s Chief Executive Officer, “MASkargo is happy to operate this particular service, marking the first charter operation between the two countries by the airline for the year.”

It was a feat as the teams involved worked through numerous challenges during the year-end holidays in getting the much-needed goods safely according to the requirements including the appropriate temperature and traveling time. Coordination of the flight was made seamless with Zagreb-based charterers, recipients in Indonesia and MASkargo teams in Kuala Lumpur and Seoul.

“With the adequate infrastructure to ensure the safe handling, transportation, and distribution of the temperature-sensitive goods, MASkargo maintained the aircraft temperature at between 15˚C to 25˚C throughout the eleven-hour flight. This mission has proven beyond doubt, MASkargo’s capability and solid track record of carrying time and temperature-sensitive products within its network and beyond,” added Ibrahim.

In addition to its freighter flights, MASkargo also operates passenger-to-cargo (P2C) flights with increased frequency to meet demand, compensating passenger capacity reduction. Besides MASkargo’s three freighter aircraft, the group also utilizes Malaysia Airlines Berhad’s passenger aircraft: The A330-300s, A350-900s, and A380-800.
