Menzies Aviation continues to grow our geographic footprint in Australia, opening a new cargo facility in Melbourne Avalon in December 2018.
Malaysian carrier AirAsia X switched their twice-daily Kuala Lumpur flight from Melbourne Tullamarine to Melbourne’s second airport at Avalon. AirAsia X are the inaugural international airline to transport cargo to Avalon Airport and are forecast to carry around 10,000 tonnes via the new location in 2019.
The airline had previously flown into Tullamarine, 40 miles (65 kilometres) away. To facilitate the cargo handing model, Menzies Aviation trucking services link the two locations, offering cargo transport solutions to our partner airline and the local freight forwarding industry.
Clayton Williams, GM Cargo for the area, said: “We are very pleased to continue to partner with AirAsia X in Melbourne Avalon. The new location enables the expansion of our trucking solutions in Victoria and has been received very positively by the local freight forwarder community.”
