MABkargo meets special request for urgent oil and gas charter

MABkargo, the freight-carrying arm of Malaysia Airlines, has flown a shipment of oil well parts from Kuala Lumpur to Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei.
The charter flight used an Airbus A330-200 freighter to move the urgently needed items.
“The oil and gas industry’s charters have always been very challenging and more often than not present logistical intricacies,” said Amiroel Shazrie Yussof, sales and marketing general manager at MABkargo.
“In this case, we have re-routed the scheduled flight planned for Kuala Lumpur – Labuan – Hanoi into [Bandar Seri Begawan] to meet a special request for immediate delivery,” he added, noting that charter flights for various industries – not just oil and gas – are a key revenue generator for MABkargo.
