Maersk launches U.S.-Korea Air Freight service


Maersk announced the inaugural flight of Maersk Air Cargo’s new air freight service with scheduled flights between Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina (GSP) and Incheon, Korea (ICN), stretching the wings of its newly introduced cargo airline for the first time.

Michel Pozas Lucic, Global Head of Air & LCL in A.P. Moller – Maersk, said, “Back in April, we announced the launch of Maersk Air Cargo as our integrated in-house air cargo carrier. With the introduction of this new service between the U.S. and Korea, we have taken the next step in securing logistics solutions for our customers with our own aircraft. Next to the new scheduled transpacific flights, we also operate our own controlled capacity from Europe into the U.S., Mexico, South Africa, and Singapore.”

The scheduled transpacific operation will commence on 31 October with two weekly flights introducing the first of three newly built Boeing 767-300 freighters that Maersk Air Cargo has recently purchased. Miami-headquartered cargo airline Amerijet International will operate all U.S.-Korea flights. Maersk Air Cargo is the cargo airline arm of A.P. Moller – Maersk and is on a journey to provide customers with unique end-to-end air freight services through its own controlled capacity and a global network of scheduled flights.

The scheduled flight of Maersk Air Cargo also marks the first scheduled air cargo operation between the state of South Carolina and Asia. In addition, the corridor from GSP International Airport is expected to increase access for trade between Asia, South Carolina significantly, and the entire Southeast U.S. Maersk also recently opened a new Chicago Air Freight Gateway facility to add more supply chain integration opportunities for customers using Chicago O’O’Harenternational and Rockford International.
