MASkargo joins IAG Cargo’s Partner Plus programme

MASkargo has become the ninth carrier to join IAG Cargo’s Partner Plus programme – through which members agree to interline on each other’s metal on a commercially booked basis.

MASkargo serves almost 100 destinations worldwide, delivering through scheduled freighter services and Malaysia Airlines belly space capacity.

IAG Cargo’s director of sales, marketing and product, Camilo Garcia said: “Our partnership with MASkargo extends IAG Cargo’s network of destinations in Oceania and Southeast Asia, and helps the business to increase its market share to regions unserved by IAG Cargo capacity.

“All IAG Cargo bookings made on Malaysia Airlines (MH) flights will benefit from confirmed booking status, a 48-hour recovery promise and full Track and Trace capability with immediate effect.”

The partnership comes after Air New Zealand also joined the programme in November 2017 as its eighth member. Partner Plus already included American Airlines, the Avianca group, China Southern Airlines, Finnair, Japan Airlines, LATAM Airlines and Qatar Airways.

Garcia added: “Both MASkargo and Air New Zealand serve a wide number of IAG Cargo touchpoints globally and offer substantial fleet capacity of their own. These two additions to our Partner Plus Programme allow us to expand our network reach in a highly efficient, cost effective way and it is great to have them aboard.”
