First MSC-branded freighter takes to the skies

Atlas Air has taken delivery of a Boeing 777-200 freighter, which it will operate on behalf of its customer MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company, as part of a previously announced long-term Acmi (aircraft, crew, maintenance, insurance) agreement. Representatives from Boeing, Atlas, and MSC participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony.


The first of four B777-200F that Atlas will operate for MSC will complement MSC’s container shipping solutions and expand service to key trade lanes for various industries, including those which traditionally have significant air cargo transportation needs.


John Dietrich, president and CEO of Atlas Air's parent company Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings: "We are looking forward to this partnership with MSC, the world’s largest shipping company, as they enter into air cargo." (ah)
