     In most places where it is hot or summer is approaching, comfort is measured in British Thermal Units, or BTUs, pumped out faithfully by air conditioners.
     But for air cargo, this Super Summer of 2018 began early in Bintulu, Malaysia (BTU), which was on the receiving end of a major charter by MABkargo.
     “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,” declared MABkargo’s Sales & Marketing General Manager Amiroel Shazrie Yussof (left).
     The MAB major oil & gas charter arrived in good shape in BTU last Thursday, May 24, and totaled 72 tons of bulk cargo.
     The charter via MAB partner Silkway West originated in Leipzig, Germany.
     On the ground in Malaysia, the MABkargo team conducted a detailed planning process to prepare the bulky cargo handling aboard a Silkway B747-400F.
     To support the jumbo jet’s operations in BTU, ground support equipment were specially brought in from Kuching and Miri airports.
     “The oil & gas industry’s charters have always been very challenging and more often than not, present logistical intricacies,” said Mr. Yussof.
     “In this case, we had to prep a small airport to receive a big aircraft.
     “With the support of a great ground handling team and local airport authorities, we made it happen,” he added.
     “Today, charter flights are a key revenue generator for MABkargo,” Mr.Yussof concluded.
