MAB Kargo adds Chongqing to Chinese network


MAB Kargo has expanded its Chinese network with two freighter flights to Chongqing from 30 October.

It says Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport is becoming an important freighter hub, especially for exports of high value electronic goods. MAB Kargo will be able to facilitate the transportation of electronic goods of major companies such as Apple, Asus and Hewlett – Packard to South and East Asia via its Kuala Lumpur hub.

MAB Kargo chief executive officer, Ahmad Luqman Ahmad Azmi says: “With the 330 operations it puts us within a seven to eight hour radius from Kuala Lumpur radius, which makes China an important market for us.”

MAB Kargo is restructuring its freighter fleet and is exiting use of the Boeing 747 Freighter and is concentrating solely on operating the Airbus A330 Freighter.

Alongside Chongqing, its freighter network also includes Hong Kong International Airport, Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Zhengzhou XinZheng International Airport.
