Kargo Xpress is ramping up capacity for air shipments within Asia as the Malaysian cargo airline startup is set to take delivery of two 737-800 Boeing converted freighters from GECAS.
Gunasekar Mariappan, Managing Director of M Jets International, the principal owner of the startup airline, said the company is focused on developing a reliable intra-Asia network with a fleet of 737 freighters.
Kargo Xpress, which began scheduled flights in June with one 737-400F, is looking to add more capacity as it plans to expand its footprint to include northern China and western India and cater ‘underserved’ routes.
The two 737-800BCFs, set to be delivered in October 2021 and January 2022, will enable the operator to provide fast, timely and efficient delivery of goods, in time for the year-end peak season and Chinese new year.
“Kargo Xpress appreciates the close working relationship with GECAS to induct our initial two 737-800BCF,” said Mariappan. “Our goal is to be the provider of choice for express e-commerce shipments, as well as point-to-point delivery, trans-shipment and flight-truck services for our time-to-market sensitive customers within Asia,” he added.
