Atlas Air has announced an agreement to extend its long-standing partnership with Qantas Freight, a leading air freight carrier in Australia. The successful partnership between Atlas Air and Qantas Freight began in 2004.
Under the extended agreement with Qantas Freight, Atlas Air will provide long-haul, wide-body main deck capacity with two Boeing 747-400Fs operating its existing network linking Australia, Asia and the U.S. An additional 747-400F has also been extended to service the one-way U.S.-Australia-Hong Kong routing, boosting capacity to meet customer demand.
Catriona Larritt, Executive Manager, Qantas Freight, said: “Air freight remains in high-demand for efficient deliveries for urgent, time-sensitive movements. Continuing our relationship with Atlas Air will ensure we can maintain these important air freight connections between Australia and several of the largest global trading hubs in Asia and the U.S, supporting long-standing relationships with our key customers.”
