Atlas to operate B767 converts for DHL
14 / 09 / 2015
US aircraft lessor Atlas Air will operate two Boeing 767Fs leased by its Titan Aviation arm to DHL Express.
Atlas Air will operate the aircraft, which are being converted from passenger to freighter configuration, through sister company Polar Air Cargo Worldwide, linking the flights with Polar’s existing services for DHL and other customers.
The new operation represents a continued expansion of Atlas Air’s crew, maintenance and insurance (CMI) service. The operation is expected to begin in late 2015 and early 2016 following the conversion of the two 767s.
“By growing our CMI operations, we continue to diversify our business mix and to drive more predictable revenue and earnings streams,” said William Flynn, president and chief executive of parent group, Atlas Air Worldwide.
The company will operate 20 aircraft in its CMI operations when these units commence service.
