Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings has announced that its Atlas Air unit has entered into an agreement to provide a second B747-400 Freighter for Asiana Cargo.
The aircraft will be operated by Atlas Air and be flown on key global routes across the fast- growing transpacific market, connecting South Korea with several destinations in the US.
The aircraft is an incremental unit in Atlas Air’s fleet in response to customer demand and will enter into service this month, the ACMI specialist said.
“We are delighted to expand our strategic partnership with Asiana Cargo,” said William J. Flynn, president and chief executive officer, Atlas Air Worldwide. “Asiana takes pride in providing reliable, high-quality service, and we are very pleased to be chosen to manage an important part of its international network.
“We look forward to providing Asiana and its customers with unmatched service and a platform for future expansion.”
Incheon International Airport (ICN)-based Asiana Cargo operates a fleet of 12 freighters: Seven B747-400BDSFs, four B747-400Fs and one B767-300ERF.
