Amerijet has leased three B757 freighter aircraft from Titan Aircraft as part of its recent fleet expansion.

The US carrier recently kicked off a fleet expansion by putting into operation the first of six B757 freighters last month. All six of the aircraft were expected to be in operation by the middle of April.

Today, Titan Aircraft confirmed that it was placing three B757-200SF converted freighters on long-term dry leases with Amerijet to support its network in Central America and the Caribbean.

Titan Aviation Holdings will manage the aircraft.

“I’m incredibly proud of our employees who worked tirelessly to bring the B757 project to fruition. These aircraft will be a wonderful addition to our fleet, giving us a platform for continued growth as we approach 50 years of continuous service from our home base in Miami, Florida,” said Tim Strauss, Amerijet’s chief executive.

The B757 additions mean that by the end of April Amerijet’s fleet will stand at 20 freighters.
