Moreover, the maiden trip is the first regularly scheduled air freight service between Asia and Denmark. High value and time-sensitive goods will now have much more access to Scandinavia, Northern Europe, and the whole Asia-Pacific region thanks to the corridor from Billund Airport.

Customers may also escape the crowding and delays common in larger airports thanks to Maersk's recently constructed air freight facility at Denmark's Billund Airport. Also, improved control and quicker cargo clearance are possible due to the proximity of Maersk's airport warehousing facilities to the aircraft parking apron.

The airport facility in Billund comprises a fully equipped, 4000 m² import and 13,000 m² export facility. Cold storage, risky products, scanning, and ULD handling are all done in separate sections. A Maersk Air cargo team with pilots and mechanics, a flight operations team, and a freight forwarding team will be present at Billund Airport to ensure dependability for Maersk customers.

Through Maersk Air Cargo, a global network of scheduled flights and Maersk's own controlled capacity, the company aims to offer customers distinctive end-to-end air freight services.

Moreover, Amerijet International, a cargo airline based in Miami, just began flying regularly between Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina (GSP) and Incheon, Korea (ICN) as part of Maersk's new air freight service.
