Titan to Place 3 767-300ER Converted Freighters with Ethiopian Airlines Group

Titan Aircraft Investments, a joint venture between Titan Aviation Holdings and Bain Capital Credit, closed an agreement for the placement of three 767-300ER converted freighters on long-term dry leases with Ethiopian Airlines Group. The addition of these three aircraft brings Titan Aircraft Investments’ freighter fleet to 10 aircraft, five of which are Boeing 767 converted freighters.

“We are delighted to welcome Ethiopian Airlines as a strategic customer and support its growing freighter fleet,” Michael Steen, president and CEO of Titan Aviation Holdings and chief commercial officer of Atlas Air Worldwide, said. “We are honored that Ethiopian Airlines recognizes our industry and technical expertise and has placed its trust in Titan.”

Ethiopian Airlines is expected to take delivery of the first of these aircraft later this month, with the second delivery planned for later this year and the third aircraft planned for 2023.

“This dry lease agreement will be fundamental to our fast growing cargo operation, as Ethiopian is a key global player in the air cargo business,” Mesfin Tasew, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Group, said. “We are glad about the partnership with Titan Aircraft Investments to enhance our capacity with three more B767 converted aircraft in addition to the existing nine widebody freighters and four B737 converted aircraft.”
