Air Transport Services Group Orders More Boeing Freighter Conversions



Cargo Aircraft Management, the leasing subsidiary of Air Transport Services Group, placed a second order with Boeing for the conversion of four Cargo Aircraft Management-owned 767-300 aircraft into Boeing Converted Freighters, with an option for four additional conversions. The conversions are slated to begin in late 2023.

“Demand for the 767-300 platform remains strong among e-commerce and express providers,” Mike Berger, chief commercial officer of Air Transport Services Group, said. “As the world leader in midsize freighter leasing, ATSG is committed to fulfilling our 360-degree brand promise to provide wide-spectrum support for our customers around the globe as they continue to grow market share and expand their reach.”

Air Transport Services Group’s initial order of four 767-300BCF conversions was announced in November 2021. With these four additional Boeing conversion commitments, Air Transport Services Group now has secured more than 80 passenger-to-freighter conversion slots over the next five years with its conversion suppliers.

“We are thrilled that ATSG has again selected the 767-300BCF to increase their portfolio and fleet growth for e-commerce and express customers around the world,” Jens Steinhagen, director of the Boeing Converted Freighter program, said. “The 767-300BCF is in strong demand, and we are adding three additional 767-300BCF conversion lines at new and existing MRO suppliers around the globe to help customers like ATSG provide their customers with the dedicated freighter capacity they need.”
