Atlas Air and YunExpress strengthen ties with new long-term charter agreement for Boeing 777-200 – Travel And Tour World

Atlas Air Inc., under the umbrella of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc., a premier global aviation logistics provider, unveiled plans to bolster its collaboration with YunExpress, part of the Zongteng Group. This enhancement includes the introduction of a second Boeing 777-200 freighter into their fleet on a long-term lease agreement.

This advancement strengthens the already prosperous partnership between Atlas and YunExpress. The addition of this new 777 freighter, set to commence operations for YunExpress in April, will support six weekly flights connecting China and the United States. This expansion is poised to augment YunExpress’ global logistics capabilities, catering to the growing needs of international e-Commerce shipments originating from China.

“We are delighted to expand our strategic and long-term partnership with YunExpress,” said Michael Steen, Chief Executive Officer, 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, stated: “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.”
