Aircraft lessor and transportation services provider Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) has taken delivery of two newly converted Boeing 767-300 Freighters.

One of the aircraft is the company’s first Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) and the other was converted by Tel Aviv-based Israel Aerospace Industries. Both will be leased through ATSG’s leasing subsidiary, Cargo Aircraft Management, to Amerijet International Airlines; the Miami-based cargo carrier already has nine other planes on lease from ATSG.

ATSG said the two aircraft illustrate its “successful supply chain diversification in meeting market demand for full freighter conversions”.

Chief commercial officer Paul Chase said: “Today we acknowledge an important milestone in the history of our company, a milestone that signifies not only our ability to execute on a clear corporate vision, but also demonstrates yet another step we’ve taken to establish ourselves as the global leader in freighter leasing.

“The strategic programme we are celebrating today is not just a plan for the future, but a roadmap to our continued success. It reflects our commitment to our customers, our employees, and our shareholders. It is a testament to our ability to adapt, innovate, and lead in a rapidly changing world,” Chase added.

ATSG is the world’s largest lessor of freighter aircraft as well as the largest owner and operator of converted Boeing 767 freighters. The company posted record revenues in 2022, up 18% year on year to $2bn, with block hours flown by its ACMI business up 9 percent for the year.
