MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) targets to double its cargo volumes in the next 10 years.
MAHB group CEO Datuk Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh (picture) said the group is committed to making Malaysia a cargo distribution hub within the Asean region.
“With the growth in cargo volumes, we are looking at improved airline connectivity via Kuala Lumpur International Airport with new routes and increase in flight frequencies, belly space utilisation and freighter capacity.
“We hope to double the current cargo volumes to 1.4 million metric tonnes (MT) in the next 10 years,” he said in a statement yesterday.
Earlier this month, MAHB and its partner Cainiao Smart Logistics Network, the logistics arm for Alibaba Group, announced the commencement of operations of the Cainiao Aeropolis eWTP Hub.
The airport operator continues to pursue new initiatives in broadening its income base.
