Atlas Air has entered into an agreement with Asiana Cargo to add a second Boeing 747-400 Freighter for the South Korean airline.
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.
Atlas Air Worldwide president and chief executive officer, William Flynn says: “We are delighted to expand our strategic partnership with Asiana Cargo. 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.”
