Atlas Air and MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company SA have entered into 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. Atlas’ order of these four aircraft was announced in January 2022.
The 777-200Fs will provide dedicated airfreight capacity to meet customer demand and will serve as a complementary service to MSC’s container shipping solutions. The 777-200F supports environmental stewardship with a twin-engine design that delivers excellent fuel efficiency and noise reduction.
MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, is a global leader in transportation and logistics, privately owned and founded in 1970 by Gianluigi Aponte. As one of the world’s leading container shipping lines, MSC has 675 offices across 155 countries worldwide with the MSC Group employing over 150,000 people.
