The carrier utilised an Airbus A330-200 freighter for the flight between Incheon International in South Korea and Soekarno-Hatta International in Indonesia with a two-hour transit at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
The ad hoc deployment of the charter service was due to the urgent need to ensure timely delivery of the items, the carrier said.
MASKargo said the teams involved worked through numerous challenges during the year-end holidays to transport goods safely according to the requirements including the appropriate temperature and travelling time.
CEO Ibrahim Mohamed Salleh said: 'With infrastructure to ensure the safe handling, MASkargo maintained the aircraft temperature at between 15 to 25 degrees Celsius throughout the 11-hour flight,' said MasKargo CEO Ibrahim Mohamed Salleh.
'This mission has proven beyond doubt, MASkargo's capability and solid track record of carrying time and temperature-sensitive products within its network and beyond,' Mr Salleh said.
