Atlas Air Gets 2nd Boeing 777-200

Chinese Brand Charters its Freighter to Meet Increased Demand at Home and Abroad

Atlas Air struck a deal with YunExpress of the Zongteng Group to charter their Boeing 777-200 under a long-term agreement, making it the second of the type in their corporate stables.

The 777 is equipped as a freighter, and will begin to operate 6 weekly routes between China and the USA, bolstering YnExpress' international logistics network while serving the rising demand for e-commerce goods stateside.

"We are delighted to expand our strategic and long-term partnership with YunExpress," said Michael Steen, CEO of Atlas Air Worldwide. "Cross-border e-Commerce is driving significant demand for Atlas' dedicated large widebody freighter capacity. Through our partnership with YunExpress, we are strengthening our position as the preferred supplier of dedicated airfreight capacity to leading players in the e-Commerce industry. Atlas has unmatched global operating capabilities and high-quality solutions that power our customers' global supply chains."

Wang Zuan, President of Zongteng Group, said the first 777 has been a hit for both companies. "Last December, YunExpress, in collaboration with Atlas, launched charter service between Xiamen, China and Miami utilizing a 777 freighter, which has been operating with solid performance. The signing of this new long-term agreement further deepens and strengthens the strategic partnership between us. Through YunExpress, we aim to meet the growing demand for airfreight capacity between China, Europe and North America. Looking ahead, we aim to further expand routes and fleet size to provide customers with more convenient and diverse global transportation options, ensure supply chain resilience, and support the steady development and growth of our customers' international businesses."
