PeTALING JAYA: MAS Kargo Sdn Bhd’s (MASkargo) inaugural freighter flight to Myanmar arrived in Yangon International Airport (RGN) last Saturday evening with 60 tonnes of cargo.
In a statement yesterday, MASkargo said MH6062 had departed the KL International Airport (KUL) for RGN before leaving for Bangkok International Airport (BKK).
Chief commercial officer Jason Thomas said MASKargo had been serving the Myanmar market for many years using its passenger flights but the increase in demand into and out of Myanmar of late had convinced the company on the viability of flying its freighter into the country.
“From Yangon, the freighter goes to Bangkok, another market which has shown an uptrend in recent times, ” he said.
The weekly service serves KUL-RGN-BKK-KUL every Saturday from July 4. — Bernama
