Raya Airways B767-200F

Malaysia-based Raya Airways has taken delivery of an additional Boeing 767-200F aircraft as it looks to cater for growing e-commerce demand.

The carrier said the addition expanded its total fleet size to four aircraft also encompassing two Boeing 767-200F and one Boeing 737-400F aircraft.

Mohamad Najib Ishak, managing director of Raya Airways, said: “The accelerated growth of e-commerce also has reshaped our commitment to anticipate and respond to the evolving needs of our customers and to expand our footprint in the region.

“With the added capacity, we are steadfast to continually extend our time-definite services to more destinations within ASEAN and potentially across the Asia-Pacific. Our regional network currently consists of over 70 commercial flights per week of which capital cities and other major business centres are interconnected.”

He added that the addition would unlock network expansion opportunities and provide capacity to increase flight frequency and improve connectivity to and from Malaysia.

The B767-200F has a load capacity of approximately 40 tonnes and an estimated range of 5,500km.

The aircraft was delivered from Wilmington Air Park Airport in the US and landed at Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport on April 6, where Raya Airways’ main base is located.
