Capital A Teleport to Restore Cargo Network in March With Over 250 Flights Across 12 Destinations
Teleport, the logistics arm of Capital A (formerly AirAsia Group), will resume more Airbus A330 cargo-only service in March with over 250 flights across 12 destinations. Teleport will offer additional capacity from Kuala Lumpur and will expand their Bangkok hub from Q2 2022.
On Monday (February 28, 2022), AirAsia announced that Teleport, the logistics venture of Capital A (formerly AirAsia Group), will resume more scheduled cargo-only flights in March using four Airbus A330s. With over 250 flights across 12 destinations, Teleport will increase capacity from their Kuala Lumpur hub and will also expand their Bangkok hub during the second quarter. Gradually, as borders reopen, the company will restore their full network of wide and narrowbody cargo connections across Asia and beyond.
In today’s announcment, Teleport’s Chief Operating Officer, Adrian Loretz, said,
“We are coming in stronger with these networked flights and our customers across Asia can look forward to greater service and improved frequency across key destinations as we continue to work to move things better than anybody else in 2022. Given the continued demand for cargo capacity, Teleport will focus on providing a wide and reliable network by maximizing the operation of the A330s, as well as the incoming dedicated freighters and AirAsia’s belly capacity in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines.
“As we are made to deliver, what we will be able to bring to the cargo scene is more routes, more capacity, a dedicated fleet for these routes and more frequency to each destination. As we continue to serve the market in Asia, we are continuously growing as a fully capable cargo provider.”
The list of Teleport routes starting in March include Kuala Lumpur (KUL), Sydney (SYD), Hong Kong (HKG), Seoul (ICN), Tokyo (HND), Taipei (TPE), Bangalore (BLR), Mumbai (BOM), Bangkok (BKK), Manila (MNL), Jakarta (CGK) and Kota Kinabalu (BKI). Routes will operate from two to seven times weekly, and Teleport expects to announce more routes soon.
Teleport was founded in 2018 as a venture under airasia Digital, with the goal of building out the logistics ambitions of the company. Since 2020, Teleport has been building a cargo-only network across key markets in the region, adding capacity for increasing e-commerce and overall cargo demand. Teleport is on a mission to enable everyone, from single merchants to the largest enterprises, to move goods anywhere in Southeast Asia and beyond. The company’s philosophy is that ‘it should simply work like magic.’
