Atlas Air receives third MSC Boeing 777 Freighter

Atlas Air, Inc., a subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc., has taken delivery of a Boeing 777 Freighter, which it will operate on behalf of its customer MSC, as part of a previously announced long-term ACMI (aircraft, crew, maintenance, insurance) agreement.

This is the third of four Boeing 777 Freighters that Atlas Air will operate for the Swiss/Italian company, which will complement the existing weekly service and add route from Hong Kong (HKG) to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW). The fourth aircraft is expected to be delivered later this year.

Richard Broekman, chief commercial officer and head of sustainability at Atlas Air Worldwide, commented, “We are proud to support the ongoing expansion of MSC’s air cargo solution by providing additional speed, flexibility and reliability to their existing network. We look forward to this third 777 Freighter entering into service for MSC, and will welcome the arrival of the fourth later this year.”

MSC said it enters the air cargo industry with the longest range and most capable twin-engine freighter flying, known for its high reliability, fuel efficiency and lower maintenance and operating costs.

The 777 Freighter has a range of 4,970 nautical miles (9,200 km) and a maximum structural payload of 235,900 pounds (107 tonnes). The 777 Freighter also meets quota count standards for maximum accessibility to noise sensitive airports around the globe.

“This latest 777 Freighter delivery accounts for a strategic addition to our MSC Air Cargo fleet, enabling us to address the market's constantly changing demands and reinforcing our commitment to enhancing trade connections for our clients. We are driven by innovation and bound to keeping up with digital transformation while offering air freight of top-quality services worldwide,” stated Jannie Davel, senior vice president for Air Cargo at MSC.
