Launched in late 2022, MSC’s Air Cargo business unit currently operates a single B777-200F aircraft between North America, Europe, and Asia. The aircraft is operated by Atlas Air under an ACMI agreement.
MSC has plans to share further details about its upcoming schedule for the second aircraft in the near future.
In November of last year, MSC informed Italian authorities it has renounced the purchase of ITA Airways after it presented the offer in January 2022.
In its statement, the group said it pulled off the deal as it did not recognise “the conditions in the current procedure”.
