KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines Cargo Sdn Bhd (MASkargo) announced that its Northern Winter 2006 freighter schedule will cover two new destinations, Malpensa in Italy and Guangzhou in China. 

In a statement yesterday, it said the company would fly to Malpensa twice a week using the B747-400 and B747-200 freighters; and to Guangzhou weekly using B747-400s. 

Malaysia Airlines senior general manager (Cargo), Datuk J J Ong said the new destinations would help strengthen the company’s position in Europe as well as improve its current position as one of Asia’s best air cargo carriers. 

“We are adding Malpensa and Guangzhou as new points to meet the growing demand for cargo,” he said. 

“As MASkargo is among the top 23 air cargo operators in the world, it is not our aim to be number one but continue to be profitable. We fly to where our customers want us to fly”, he added. 

With the new destinations, MASkargo now operates nine times to Europe weekly. – Bernama
