MAB Kargo has expanded its presence in Thailand with the launch of a freighter service to Bangkok Suvarnbhumi International Airport from Kuala Lumpur (KL).
This weekly service will be operated with an Airbus A330 Freighter with a capacity of 60 tonnes of payload and has been started to tap into the rising demand for air cargo shipments between Bangkok and KL.
The once a week flight starts in KL, stops in Bangkok via Hanoi in Vietnam before heading back to Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
MAB Kargo says Bangkok is one of the rising South East Asia hubs for air cargo carriers and flights will handle lots of machinery and agricultural products from both countries along with general cargo.
The Malaysian Airlines cargo arm now has a network of 22 destinations around the globe and its says the new route will expand its presence in South East Asia and capitalise on airfreight growth in Thailand.
