Airborne Global Solutions signs B767F deal with Amazon

E-commerce giant Amazon has contracted ATSG subsidiary Airborne Global Solutions to operate six of its B767-300 freighters.

The freighters will be operated under under an existing crew, maintenance and insurance (CMI) agreement.

This commitment from Amazon applies to the first six of the twelve B767 freighters that Amazon agreed in May to lease from ATSG’s Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM) subsidiary by the end of 2021, each lease having a ten-year term.

The first of the six CAM-leased aircraft began operation for Amazon Air in 2020 and the remaining five CAM-leased aircraft will begin operation in 2021.

Including these six aircraft, ATSG projects that its airlines will operate 38 Boeing 767s for Amazon Air by April of next year, 36 of which are leased to Amazon by CAM.

The CMI agreement was amended in December 2018 to extend through March 2026, with an option to extend for an additional three years.

ATSG subsidiary Air Transport International will fly all six of the B767s to be added to the Amazon CMI agreement.

Earlier this week, Air Cargo News reported that Amazon had purchased its first aircraft — so far all its freighters have been obtained through lease deals.
