KUALA LUMPUR: October 05, 2018. MABKargo, the air cargo arm of Malaysia Airlines, and subsidiary of the Malaysia Aviation Group, delivered an outsize consignment of oil well parts on an A330-200 freighter from Kuala Lumpur to Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam today.

MAB Cargo OG“The oil & gas industry’s charters have always been very challenging and more often than not present logistical intricacies. In this case, we have re-routed the scheduled flight planned for Kuala Lumpur–Labuan–Hanoi into BWN to meet a special request for immediate delivery,” explained Amiroel Shazrie Yussof, MABkargo general manager Sales & Marketing.

“Charter flights are ideal for the oil & gas industry as they allow our customers to work on their own schedule utilizing the most convenient airports,” he continued. “Over the years, MABkargo has gained immense experience from coordinating and successfully delivering oil and gas equipment to a number of destinations worldwide. Our experience in handling charters created a niche strength for us [and are] are a key revenue generator.”

According to a September economic forecast from the Asia Development Bank (ADB), overall Southeast Asian growth is expected to be 5.1 percent this year due to moderation in export growth, softer domestic demand, subdued agriculture, higher inflation, net capital outflow and a worsening balance of payments in Indonesia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR), Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Viet Nam.

Brunei Darussalam and Thailand, by contrast, look set to outperform earlier forecasts, while Cambodia and Singapore will likely meet April projections. Growth is still forecast to return in 2019 to the 2017 rate of 5.2 percent says the ADB.
