Atlas Air Takes Delivery of First of Four New Boeing 777-200 Freighters



Share - Facebook - Twitter
Atlas Air today announced it has taken delivery of a Boeing 777-200 Freighter, which it will operate on behalf of its customer MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company SA, as part of a previously announced long-term ACMI (aircraft, crew, maintenance, insurance) agreement.

The 777-200 Freighter will complement MSC’s world-class container shipping solutions and expand service to key trade lanes for various industries, including those which traditionally have significant air cargo transportation needs. This aircraft is the first of four new Boeing 777 Freighters that Atlas will operate for MSC.

With an established history of twin-engine efficiency, reduced fuel consumption, and lower maintenance and operating costs, MSC enters the air cargo industry with the longest-range twin-engine freighter in the world, capable of flying 4,880 nautical miles (9,038 kilometers). The 777-200F also meets quota count standards for maximum accessibility to noise‑sensitive airports around the globe.
