Teleport signs interline agreement with SF Airlines

Teleport CEO Pete Chareonwongsak

Air logistics provider Teleport and Chinese cargo carrier SF Airlines have signed a bilateral interline partnership to leverage each other’s air networks.

Teleport, the cargo and logistics unit of Malaysia’s Capital A, brings to the table logistics access into Southeast Asia, and SF Airlines a large express network within China and outbound into European and North American markets.

“This partnership has already moved significant cargo volumes for customers of both parties on the combined network,” said Teleport in a press release.

Teleport is currently adding third-party airlines to its air logistics network to expand into key airports such as Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok from China, while extending network reach into new markets such as Europe and the US.

Pete Chareonwongsak, chief executive of Teleport, said: “This partnership is in service of our continued efforts to add valuable third-party airline partnerships to Teleport. We are looking forward to supporting SF Airlines to expand their cross-border product in Southeast Asia.

“In turn, our partnership with SF Airlines, the largest cargo airline in China not only strengthens our regional connectivity within China but also extends our market reach into Europe and the Americas, connecting our network globally beyond Southeast Asia.

“This will help us better serve our customers needs, deepen our end-to-end capabilities, and ramp up our ability to scale our business to better serve the region.”

SF Airlines operates a fleet of 84 freighters. Its international network includes destinations in Europe, the US, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia.

Li Sheng, Chairman of SF Airlines, commented: “We’re delighted to partner with Teleport, a market leader in the Southeast Asia region. This partnership allows us to deepen our network access into Teleport’s wide network reach and frequency into Southeast Asia as well as key Asia Pacific markets. We look forward to this partnership in further strengthening our commitment to continuously expand and strengthen our air-logistics service capability”

Teleport utilises the surplus belly space of 204 wide and narrow-body AirAsia passenger aircraft. The company also inducted the first of three Airbus A321 converted freighters in July.
