MSC to use Liege Airport as European hub for its new air cargo airline

MSC is using Liege Airport in Belgium as the European hub for its new air cargo airline. The airline – MSC Air Cargo – has started operations there, with a first landing on 3 December.

MSC recently took delivery of the first of four MSC Air Cargo-branded Boeing 777-200F aircraft, to be operated by Atlas Air. This aircraft will start with four rotations per week via Liege Airport, operating regular services connecting both Mexico City and US airport Indianapolis with Liege.

Additionally, round-the-world services will be operated via Liege. These routes will be dedicated to pharmaceutical products, perishable goods and high-value cargo. Handling services at Liege will be provided by Challenge Handling.

The other three MSC 777-200Fs will be delivered during 2023 and a further increase of weekly MSC Air Cargo freighter calls in Liege Airport is expected.

“We are really proud to be hosting a world-renowned group such as MSC. We look forward to supporting MSC as it develops its air freight business and further enhances its position as a global leader in transportation and logistics,” said Liege Airport’s CEO Laurent Jossart.

“The selection of Liege Airport shows once again not only that it has a prominent place in the world of cargo but also and above all that it is playing an important role in a multimodal vision of logistics. We are delighted to welcome MSC Air Cargo to Liege and to be vital partners in their projects.”
