Teleport strengthens key routes with B737 freighter, 2 A320 converted pax planes

Malaysian airlines group AirAsia's logistics subsidiary Teleport on Friday said it has strengthened its key routes with a dedicated 737-800 freighter and two A320 converted passenger aircraft. The freighter will begin operations across Asia from the third quarter of 2021 and will operate out of the Teleport hub in Bangkok, it said in a release.

The additional capacity will strengthen its route network between China, India and Southeast Asia and offer improved connectivity to and from Teleport's long-haul markets, the company said.

In May, AirAsia operated six A330 and two A320 on behalf of Teleport and plans to increase it within the year, it said, adding, “with the leasing of the freighter and the conversion of planes, Teleport will be even more capable and reliable in delivering more cargo and enforces Teleport's coverage across Asia.” Adrian Loretz, Chief Operating Officer of Teleport said, “we are excited to share this expansion as we strengthen our logistics footprint across Asia. It was evident at the end of last year that the demand for cargo capacity was not going to be served with passenger belly capacity alone in the long run. So, we evaluated the option to utilise dedicated freighters to transport cargo.” This is also part of Teleport's strategy to build the capacity and connectivity to offer 24 hours door-to-door delivery across all of Southeast Asia, he said.
