Maximus looks to expand
29 / 06 / 2010
MAXIMUS Air Cargo is looking to buy more freighters and to expand out of Abu Dhabi.
“We’re now looking for one or maybe two A300-600 freighters,” said Fathi Buhazza the company’s chief executive officer. “We’re also looking at other aircraft in discussions with Etihad.”
It is about to launch an ACMI-Plus service where instead of the lessee having sole responsibility of covering the operating costs of the aircraft, both lessee and lessor will be involved.
“It’s a win-win,” said Buhazza. “None of our rivals offer this service, so we see it as a way of differentiating our product in the market.”
Maximus currently operates one An-124-100, two A300-600RFs, three Il-76TDs and two L-382G Hercules aircraft, with an aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance (ACMI) leasing deal for the two A300-600 freighters for Etihad Crystal Cargo.
