ANA drops 767 from ATSG
31 / 03 / 2009
ALL Nippon Airways (ANA) has cancelled its contract with Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) for the wetleasing of a 767 freighter.
ANA’s contract was pivotal to ATSG’s attempt to branch out into wetleasing, especially following the loss of business when DHL pulled out of the US market last year.
As a result ATSG – through two of its subsidiaries, Capital Cargo International and Air Transport International (ATI) – has also announced that it will no longer fly four planes for BAX Global. ATI will drop two of nine DC-8 freighters while Capital Cargo will drop two of twelve 727 freighters.
