Air New Zealand collaborates with Red Cargo
20 / 02 / 2019
RedCargo Logistics, the cargo and logistics wing of Kuala Lumpur-headquartered low-cost carrier AirAsia, has signed an interline agreement with Air New Zealand to provide additional market access to their respective cargo businesses.
The partnership, the first of its kind for RedCargo, provides for “shared value and cooperation alongside the complementary strengths” of the two airlines, it said.
RedCargo customers will now have access to the belly capacity of Air New Zealand flights operated between Australia and New Zealand and onwards to the US, while Air New Zealand customers gain access to cargo capacity on AirAsia services from Australia into Southeast Asia.
The chief executive of RedCargo Logistics, Pete Chareonwongsak, commented: “RedCargo is proud to partner with a like-minded, digital-savvy airline such as Air New Zealand, to provide cargo capacity to the more than 140 destinations in AirAsia’s short and long-haul network.
“This agreement provides global reach and market access for customers across Southeast Asia, New Zealand and the US, and helps to facilitate trade and e-commerce fulfillment in key production and consumer markets,” Chareonwongsak said.
RedCargo added that it will continue to seek and develop airline partnerships as it aims to create a “compelling digital airfreight platform across Asia Pacific”.
Incorporated in March 2018, RedCargo Logistics is a wholly-owned subsidiary of AirAsia Group. It is the exclusive provider of cargo capacity for the AirAsia and AirAsia X group of airlines.
