Atlas Air has expanded its strategic agreement with Nippon Cargo Airlines to add three NCA-owned Boeing 747-400 Freighters to the existing operation.
The incremental aircraft will be operated on key routes across the transpacific market, and are scheduled to enter service in April, July and September 2019, bringing the total number of 747-400Fs operated on behalf of NCA to five.
William Flynn, president and CEO of Atlas Air Worldwide says: “We are delighted to grow our partnership with Nippon Cargo Airlines. NCA has selected Atlas Air to operate its entire 747-400F fleet, and we look forward to continuing to provide NCA and its customers with an unmatched service and a platform for future global expansion.”
Hitoshi Oshika, president and CEO of Nippon Cargo Airlines says: “The partnership with Atlas has enabled NCA to expand our network to capture growth opportunities throughout Asia. The addition of these three aircraft will allow NCA to provide our customers with additional airfreight capacity, especially for the growing e-commerce business.”
