Atlas Air (5Y, New York JFK) has taken delivery of the first of four B777-200Fs that it aims to operate on behalf of MSC Air Cargo, with plans to begin these commercial operations in early December 2022.

The Swiss-based shipping giant has not yet confirmed the exact date of the first flight. Its initial schedule covers the following routes:

N707GT (msn 67992) was delivered from Everett to Cincinnati International on November 21, 2022, Flightradar24 ADS-B data shows. The aircraft is already in MSC Air Cargo livery but remains parked, awaiting entry into service. It will be operated on behalf of the Swiss-based shipping giant under a long-term charter agreement. It joins the existing fleet of nine B777-200Fs operated by Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, including one placed with Atlas Air and eight with sister carrier Polar Air Cargo.

The other three B777-200Fs for MSC Air Cargo's operations are scheduled to deliver in 2023.
