A.P. Moller – Maersk has officially started air freight services between US and Korea with the inaugural flight on 31 October.
Maersk Air Cargo, the cargo airline arm of A.P. Moller – Maersk, has commenced its scheduled transpacific operations between Greenville-Spartanburg in South Carolina (GSP) and Incheon (ICN).
Miami-headquartered cargo airline Amerijet International will operate the two weekly flights for Maersk Air Cargo using the first of three newly built Boeing 767-300 freighters that have been purchased by the logistics integrator.
Maersk said the new route marks the first scheduled air cargo operation between the state of South Carolina and Asia. The company recently opened a new air freight gateway facility at Chicago O’Hare International and Rockford International. It also operates its own controlled capacity from Europe into the US, Mexico, South Africa, and Singapore.
