Maersk’s new air freight service to connect Denmark with China

A.P. Moller - Maersk announced the inaugural flight of its new air freight service with scheduled flights between Billund, Denmark (BLL) and Hangzhou, China (HGH).

The scheduled Eurasia operation is scheduled to commence today (20 March) with three weekly flights introducing the first of three newly converted Boeing 767-300 freighters that have recently been purchased for Maersk Air Cargo.

All Europe-China flights will be operated by Maersk's internal cargo airline.

“With the introduction of our new service between Europe and China, we have taken another leap with our customers in providing true integrated logistics. We want to ensure that our customers have visibility, reliability, and resilience in their supply chains. In this, air freight with scheduled flights and controlled capacity represents a crucial part of our customers' end-to-end logistics needs,” commented Michel Pozas Lucic, global head of Air in A.P. Moller – Maersk.

The inaugural flight also marks the first scheduled air cargo operation between Denmark and Asia.

Furthermore, Maersk has launched a new air freight service with scheduled flights between Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina (GSP) and Incheon, Korea (ICN) operated by Miami-headquartered cargo airline Amerijet International.

In addition, the Danish company opened a new Chicago air freight gateway facility to add more supply chain integration opportunities for customers using Chicago O’Hare International and Rockford International.
