AirAsia's Teleport to launch dedicated freighter service

AirAsia's cargo subsidiary Teleport has announced it will launch dedicated freighter operations later this year. The company is set to take delivery of a B737-800F later this year and will also use two "phreighter" A320s from mother AirAsia.

The B737-800F and one A320 will be based at Bangkok, while the other A320 will be based at Kuala Lumpur. They will be used to fly to China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Myanmar and Vietnam.

The move into all cargo-flying is part of AirAsia's plan to further diversify its operations and was announced during the presentation of its 2020-results earlier this year. If succesful, Teleport expects to grow the fleet with more dedicated freighters later on.
