In response to clients’ global air freight demands, Maersk has developed Maersk Air Cargo. Maersk Air Cargo is the company’s main air freight offering, serving the logistics needs of its clients with integrated logistics.
Simultaneously, Maersk has chosen Billund, Denmark’s second biggest airport, as its air freight center for Air Cargo, with daily flights producing numerous employment in the region. Maersk Air Cargo also announces its intention to enter into an agreement with the Flight Personnel Union (FPU), a member of the Danish Confederation of Trade Unions (FH).
Maersk’s owned managed capacity, driven by Cargo from Maersk, is intended to improve the resilience and intuitiveness of supply chain routes. Maersk Air Freight, as a stand-alone service, can assist clients in capitalizing on possibilities by delivering their air freight to the right location at the right time. It will energize your supply chain in more ways than one when integrated with our maritime, inland, warehouse, and customs services.
The new air freight firm is the consequence of the previous in-house aircraft operator, Star Air, transferring activities into Air Cargo of Maersk, the new carrier servicing existing and new clients, as well as Maersk’s end-to-end logistics. Customers, suppliers, staff, and the Danish Civil Aviation Authority have all been extremely helpful in the process of moving activities.

Maersk’s last operation out of Billund took place in 2005. Maersk Air Freight will gradually deploy and operate five aircraft from the continent, including two new B777Fs and three leased B767-300 cargo planes. Three more B767-300 freighters will also be added to the US-China service, which will be managed by a third-party operator at first. The new planes are set to go into service in the second part of 2022 and continue until 2024.
Billund Airport is looking forward to having Cargo from Maersk, which will also help the West Danish business sector flourish.
Maersk hopes to carry roughly one-third of its annual air tonnage through its own controlled freight network. This will be accomplished through a combination of owned and leased aircraft, mirroring the company’s ocean fleet structure. Strategic commercial carriers and charter flight operators will provide the remainder of the capacity.
Maersk Air Cargo is planned to be fully operational in the second half of 2022.
