ECS Group subsidiary Wexco Group has signed a GSSA contract with Teleport, the logistics venture of Capital A (formerly known as AirAsia) that covers Australia operations for three airlines.
The contract covers AirAsia X, Thai AirAsia X, and Indonesia AirAsia, for all belly capacity originating from Australia and New Zealand.
The contract puts Wexco in charge of filling a total of 43 flights per week out of Sydney, Perth, and Melbourne, with an average weekly uplift of 120 tons.
With this, both Teleport and Wexco Group are expected to facilitate the strong movements of perishable cargo, health food supplements, electrical goods, general cargo (consolidations), and mail within the region.
AirAsia X’s 22 weekly flights operated with widebody A330-300 aircraft, include daily services from Sydney to Auckland, and Kuala Lumpur.
Kuala Lumpur is also served four times a week out of Melbourne, and four weekly from Perth. The airline’s main hub offers a multitude of connections across its vast Asian network, covering prime global cargo hubs such as Taipei in Taiwan, and Incheon in South Korea.
“We are excited to collaborate with Wexco as a partner, who brings onboard their robust experience and quality customer service to help better serve our cargo customers in this region. This is in line with Teleport’s growth strategy for Australia and New Zealand, where businesses here can also take advantage of our extensive ASEAN network for further distribution into the region” said Francis Antony, group head of cargo commercial at Teleport.
Thai AirAsia X runs seven weekly flights, also deploying A330-300 widebodies: three weekly services from Melbourne to Bangkok, and four weekly flights from Sydney to Bangkok. These flights can be booked to connect to popular cargo destinations within the Asia Pacific region, namely Japan and India, amongst others.
Indonesia AirAsia operates 14 weekly flights operated with narrowbodies A320 aircraft, twice daily between Perth and Denpasar.
