Air and sea marriage sealed with a kiss
Atlas Air Worldwide's affiliate Atlas Air and MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company recently inked an agreement that enables MSC to expand its reach and capacity for its customers.
Under the terms of the long-term ACMI (aircraft, crew, maintenance, and insurance) agreement, Atlas Air will operate all four of its new and incoming Boeing 777-200 freighters on a global basis for MSC, with the first delivery being taken in Q4/2022.
The company’s order of these four aircraft was announced in January 2022. The 777-200Fs will serve as a complementary service to MSC’s container shipping solutions.
“We are pleased to welcome MSC as a new customer,” said John Dietrich, president and chief executive officer, Atlas Air Worldwide. Soren Toft, chief executive officer, MSC commented: “We are delighted to announce the development of MSC Air Cargo."
