ATSG selects Boeing for first converted freighter order

Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) has contracted Boeing for the conversion of four aircraft to 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighters (BCF).

The aircraft leasing company operates a fleet of 106 Boeing aircraft, including more than 90 767 converted freighters.

“Our continued confidence in the 767-300 platform, now coupled with the services and support of the OEM, reinforces our commitment to deliver best-in-class reliable services to our customers,” said ATSG’s chief commercial officer Mike Berger.

Boeing now has more than 100 orders and commitments from customers for its 767-300 converted freighter aircraft.

“We are honoured that ATSG has decided to make the 767-300BCF an integral part of their fleet expansion strategy, supporting customers looking to capitalise on strong e-commerce demand,” said Boeing Converter Freighter’s director Jens Steinhagen.

“As the OEM, Boeing has the original design data, robust supply chains, and dependable delivery schedules that benefit BCF customers such as ATSG. With that OEM advantage, we stand ready to meet ATSG’s needs by bringing forward market-leading 767-300BCFs into its fleet.”
