IAG Cargo has welcomed MASkargo as the ninth carrier in its Partner Plus programme to interline on each other’s airlines on a commercially booked basis.
The partnership comes after Air New Zealand joined the programme in November 2017.
The other existing members are American Airlines Cargo, the Avianca Group, China Southern Airlines, Finnair, Japan Airlines, LATAM Airlines and Qatar Airways.
IAG Cargo director of sales, marketing and product, Camilo Garcia says: “Our partnership with MASkargo extends IAG Cargo’s network of destinations in Oceania and Southeast Asia, and helps the business to increase its market share to regions unserved by IAG Cargo capacity.
“All IAG Cargo bookings made on Malaysia Airlines (MH) flights will benefit from confirmed booking status, a 48-hour recovery promise and full Track and Trace capability with immediate effect.”
Garcia adds: “Both MASkargo and Air New Zealand serve a wide number of IAG Cargo touchpoints globally and offer substantial fleet capacity of their own. These two additions to our Partner Plus Programme allow us to expand our network reach in a highly efficient, cost effective way and it is great to have them aboard.”
MASkargo, the cargo division of Malaysia Aviation Group serves almost 100 destinations worldwide using freighter services and Malaysia Airlines belly space capacity.
