Shipping giant AP Moller-Maersk has applied to the US Department of Transportation to have the foreign air carrier permit of subsidiary Star Air transferred to its new Maersk Air Cargo business.

In filings seen by Air Cargo News, the company has applied to amend and reissue Star Air’s foreign air carrier permit in the company’s new legal name Maersk Air Cargo and pending the approval of the amendment, issue exemption authority in the same name.

“AP Moller-Maersk has recently undergone a corporate restructuring in which Maersk Air Cargo was created as a new subsidiary company of Maersk Aviation Holding,” the company said in the application.

“Maersk Air Cargo is the new operating entity for Maersk’s air cargo shipping service.

“The Applicant intends to use the Maersk Air Cargo name on its services operated to and from the US.”

No objections were received to the application.
