AirAsia prioritises cargo business

ASIA’S largest low-cost carrier, AirAsia, is aggressively developing its cargo business. The airline has made airfreight a major area of development in 2010 and expects its cargo revenue to grow by more than 40 per cent from last year.

Sathis Manoharen, AirAsia regional head for cargo, said, “We’ve been signing up more key players in the cargo industry. Demand for our cargo space is picking up, and more large companies are interested in our cargo services.”

AirAsia has operations based in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. It operates short- and long-haul flights on 132 routes around Asia-Pacific, UAE and the UK.
