MASKargo continues cargo charter flights in 2021

By Damian Brett

MASKargo has carried out its first cargo charter flight this year transporting approximately 20 tonnes of Covid-19 test kits.

The carrier utilised an Airbus A330-200 freighter for the flight, which operated between Incheon International in South Korea and Soekarno-Hatta International in Indonesia with a two-hour transit at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The ad hoc deployment of the charter service was due to the urgent need to ensure timely delivery of the items, the carrier said.

MASKargo said the teams involved worked through numerous challenges during the year-end holidays to transport goods safely according to the requirements including the appropriate temperature and travelling time.

MasKargo chief executive Ibrahim Mohamed Salleh said: “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.”
