Paul Chase, ATSG chief commercial officer
Air Transport Services Group’s (ATSG) Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM) subsidiary has delivered a record six converted freighters under lease in one month to customers globally.
This brings ATSG’s total deliveries this year to nine.
Converted freighter deliveries by the company in the past month, each of which are under lease for a term of seven years, include two Airbus A321-200 delivered to Raya Airways, which also currently operates three Boeing 767-200 aircraft leased from CAM; and a 767-300 leased to Cargojet, bringing the total number of their CAM-leased 767 freighters to four.
The deliveries also include a 767-300 leased to new customer Georgian Airlines; and a 767-300 leased to Amerijet. CAM now leases a total of 10 767-300 freighters to Amerijet.
Furthermore, a 767-300 was leased to SkyTaxi. The Poland-based company also leases two 767-200 freighters from CAM.
“We delivered six aircraft to operators in five countries in one month, demonstrating the success of our globalization strategy,” said Paul Chase, chief commercial officer of ATSG.
“The global demand for our medium-widebody converted freighter aircraft has remained strong due to the continued expansion of global express and e-commerce markets.
“We are meeting this demand by continuing to deliver 767 converted freighters while also introducing A321 and A330 freighters to the market in 2023 and 2024 respectively.”
CAM looked healthy in the second quarter ended June 30, thanks to sustained freighter leases.
