Copenhagen, Denmark - A.P. Moller - Maersk (Maersk) today 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.

The scheduled transpacific operation will commence 31 October with two weekly flights introducing the first of three newly built Boeing 767-300 freighters that have recently been purchased by Maersk Air Cargo. All U.S.-Korea flights will be operated by Miami-headquartered cargo airline Amerijet International.

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 own controlled capacity and a global network of scheduled flights.

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 aircrafts. Next to the new scheduled transpacific flights, we also operate own controlled capacity from Europe into the US, Mexico, South Africa, and Singapore.
