ATSG, Boeing announce agreement for 8 additional 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighters

ATSG’s largest order with Boeing to date for the 767-300BCF

Air Transport Services Group, Inc., the world’s largest lessor of 767-300 converted freighters, announced that its leasing subsidiary Cargo Aircraft Management has placed a second order with Boeing for up to eight 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighters (BCF). The agreement includes four firm orders and four options. The first 767-300 to be converted as part of this new order is expected to begin in late 2023.

“Demand for the 767-300 platform remains strong among e-commerce and express providers,” said Mike Berger, chief commercial officer of ATSG. “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.”

ATSG placed its first order with Boeing for four 767-300BCF conversions in November, and will take re-delivery of the first freighter later this year.

“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,” said Jens Steinhagen, director of the Boeing Converted Freighter program. “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.”

The 767-300BCF is the world's most efficient medium widebody converted freighter and can carry up to 51.6 tonnes (113,900 pounds) up to 6,190 kilometers (3,345 nautical miles). 767 Freighters provide the lowest operating costs per trip with excellent payload and range capability.
