The leasing subsidiary of Air Transport Services Group (ATSG), Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM), has delivered a record six converted freighters under lease in one month to customers around the globe.
This achievement brings ATSG’s total deliveries this year to nine, with each converted freighter under lease for a term of seven years.
The converted freighter deliveries include: two Airbus A321-200 delivered to Raya Airways of Malaysia, which also currently operates three Boeing 767-200 aircraft leased from CAM; one Boeing 767-300 leased to Cargojet Airways of Mississauga, Canada, bringing the total number of their CAM-leased Boeing 767 freighters to four; one Boeing 767-300 leased to Amerijet International Airlines of Miami, Florida – this means CAM now leases a total of 10 Boeing 767-300 freighters to Amerijet; and one Boeing 767-300 leased to SkyTaxi of Wroclaw, Poland, which also leases two Boeing 767-200 freighters from CAM.
The deliveries also include one Boeing 767-300 leased to Georgian Airlines LLC of Tbilisi, Georgia – a new customer for ATSG.
Paul Chase, chief commercial officer of ATSG, said: “We delivered six aircraft to operators in five countries in one month, demonstrating the success of our globalisation strategy.
“The global demand for our medium-widebody converted freighter aircraft has remained strong due to the continued expansion of global express and e-commerce markets.
“We are meeting this demand by continuing to deliver 767 converted freighters while also introducing A321 and A330 freighters to the market in 2023 and 2024 respectively.”
