Uzbekistan-based airline My Freighter will lease two more Boeing 767-300 passenger to freighter (P2F) aircraft from Air Transport Services Group’s (ATSG) subsidiary, Airborne Global Leasing.

The addition of these two aircraft will expand the Tashkent-hubbed airline’s ATSG-leased fleet to five 767-300P2Fs as part of efforts to connect trading hubs along the silk road from China to Europe.

“Our partnership with ATSG marks a significant milestone for My Freighter,” said Abdulaziz Abdurakhmanov, founder and chief executive officer of My Freighter. “This collaboration not only strengthens our service portfolio but also enhances our ability to serve a growing, world-class customer base.

“By connecting key trade hubs along the modern Silk Road, we are facilitating efficient and reliable transportation of goods, thereby fostering economic growth in the region. We are excited about the opportunities this partnership brings and look forward to a fruitful and long-term relationship with ATSG.”

“ATSG continues to expand its international leasing network,” added Mike Berger, ATSG’s chief executive. “This commitment for additional capacity increases the global reach of our fleet, serving emerging e-commerce markets.

“Tashkent, Uzbekistan is a great location to meet the growing need for geographical capacity. This is another example of how ATSG partners with great companies like My Freighter to facilitate trade across the globe.”

My Freighter provides cargo air charter services in Uzbekistan and the Central Asian region. The airline’s specialist air cargo verticals include dangerous goods, perishables and brokerage and certification.

In March, My Freighter took delivery of its third 767-300P2F from ATSG.

My Freighter also previously planned to build 747-200Fs into its operations. The airline took delivery of a 747-200F in October 2022 and said at the time it planned to add five more, but current data from Planespotters shows it no longer has the aircraft. This follows reduced demand in 2023 that resulted in many airlines changing their fleet plans.

However, although My Freighter’s fleet plans have changed, the airline is still investing in expanding its network.

Last month, My Freighter and Air Europa announced an interline agreement that will allow My Freighter to add flights to the Americas and Air Europa to expand into Asia.

My Freighter was also granted permission to start flights to China earlier this year.

In addition to cargo flights, the airline offers passenger flights. Cargo flights are operated under ‘My Freighter Cargo Airlines’, whilst passenger flights are operated under ‘Centrum Air’.
