MSC has received its first MSC-branded aircraft, built by Boeing and operated by Atlas Air. The 8777-200 Freighter will fly on routes between China, the US, Mexico and Europe.
Atlas Air, Inc., a subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc., is supporting MSC on an aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance (ACMI) basis. This aircraft is the first of four B777-200Fs in the pipeline, which are being placed on a long-term basis with MSC, providing dedicated capacity to support the ongoing development of the business.
The B777-200F twin-engine aircraft has been commended for its advanced fuel efficiency measures. It also has low maintenance and operating costs, and, with a range of 4,880 nautical miles (9,038 km), it can fly further than any other aircraft in its class. It also meets quota count standards for maximum accessibility to noise sensitive airports around the globe.
