“With the introduction of our new service between Europe and China, we have taken another leap with our customers in providing true integrated logistics. We want to ensure that our customers have the visibility, reliability, and resilience in their supply chains. In this, air freight with scheduled flights and controlled capacity represents a crucial part of our customers´ end-to-end logistics needs,” Michel Pozas Lucic, Global Head of Air in A.P. Moller - Maersk said in a statement. 

This initiative also marks the first scheduled air cargo operation between Denmark and Asia. Apart from that, Maersk at the same time opened an air freight hub at Billund Airport. It promises a significant raise in access level for cargo between Scandinavia, Northern Europe and Asia Pacific.
