ATSG reports seven 767 deliveries in Q4

During the fourth quarter of 2018, Air Transport Services Group’s (ATSG) Cargo Aircraft Management and ATSG West Leasing subsidiaries, delivered seven leased freighters, which the company says points to the continued strong demand for its converted Boeing 767 freighter aircraft.

Amerijet International Airlines of Miami, Florida, took delivery of a Boeing 767-300 converted freighter. CAM now leases seven 767 freighters to Amerijet.

Cargojet Airways of Mississauga, Canada, took delivery of two more Boeing 767-300 converted freighters, bringing the total number of aircraft leased to CargoJet to four.

SkyTaxi of Wroclaw, Poland, took delivery of its first Boeing 767-200 converted freighter, with an option to lease a second freighter in 2019.

West Atlantic of Gothenburg, Sweden, took delivery of a Boeing 767-200 converted freighter. This is West Atlantic’s sixth aircraft leased from ATSG.

Also, two Boeing 767-300 freighters were delivered internally to ATSG subsidiary airline Air Transport International, to be operated for external customers under ACMI agreements that extend well into 2019.

Additionally, a DHL-leased 767-200 freighter was transferred to Bahrain from DHL’s US air cargo network. DHL now has six ATSG 767-200s in the Middle East.

Mike Berger, Chief Commercial Officer of ATSG, said: “This fourth quarter has been our best ever in terms of aircraft deliveries and meeting the needs of our customers with efficient, timely service. It is especially satisfying because we are providing a platform of growth for existing customers, adding new customers to our portfolio worldwide, and meeting our commitment to deliver ten newly converted 767-300s in 2018.”
