Low rates, inadequacy of infrastructure make India less favourable: MASkargo

Malaysia Airlines Cargo Sdn Bhd (MASkargo), the cargo unit of Malaysian Airline System Bhd (MAS), is spreading its wings in its European and China markets via cooperation with other airlines. MASkargo is in talks with airlines in China for flight and ground handling services, and the impending addition of Milan, Italy, to its network may lead to cooperation with several European carriers.
MAS senior general manager (cargo) Datuk J J Ong (pic) said cooperation with foreign carriers is its new growth strategy as MASkargo grappled with high fuel prices and shortage of fuel-efficient aircraft.
On India, he said though the market is big, the issues of low rates and inadequacy of infrastructure in that country are not favourable for the freighter operator.
