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).
The scheduled transpacific operation commenced on 31 October with two weekly flights introducing the first 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.
The scheduled flight of Maersk Air Cargo also marks the first scheduled air cargo operation between the state of South Carolina and Asia. The corridor from GSP International Airport is expected to significantly increase access for trade between Asia, South Carolina, and the entire Southeast U.S.
Maersk also recently opened a new Chicago Air Freight Gateway facility to add more supply chain integration opportunities by using Chicago O’Hare International and Rockford International.
