By Damian Brett

New market entrant CMA CGM Air Cargo on March 13 operated its first flight.

The inaugural flight of the shipping group’s air cargo subsidiary took off from Liege Airport in Europe and headed across the Atlantic to Chicago O’Hare in the US utilising one of its Airbus A330-200 freighters.

A second Airbus A330-200F will enter into service on March 18, and will also serve the US.

The aircraft are being operated by Air Belgium, while ECS is selling capacity in its role as general sales agent.

Part of the aircraft’s capacity is dedicated to CMA CGM’s forwarding subsidiary, CEVA.

CMA CGM Air Cargo’s fleet will initially consist of four A330-200Fs.
