WILMINGTON, Ohio – Air Transport Services Group, Inc. has deployed two extra freighters for DHL Express.

A Boeing 767-300 converted freighter was put into service this June in the DHL Express network in Asia under the terms of a stand-alone ACMI agreement with DHL-Bahrain.

This agreement is to provide capacity support for general express freight and delivery of COVID-19 related relief supplies to Sydney, Australia. ATSG subsidiary Air Transport International (ATI) is operating the flights from Hong Kong to Sydney via Guam.

An additional Boeing 767 has been deployed under a separate aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance (ACMI) agreement between DHL Express and ATSG to serve routes from Chicago O’Hare Airport (US) to Cologne Bonn Airport (Germany) via East Midlands Airport (England). ATSG subsidiary ABX Air is operating this route to provide DHL additional capacity to meet the high level of service expected within its network.

The freighters are leased from ATSG subsidiary Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM) and bring ATSG’s support of DHL’s network to sixteen Boeing 767 aircraft.

ATSG, through its leasing and airline subsidiaries, is the world’s largest owner and operator of converted Boeing 767 freighter aircraft.

Through its principal subsidiaries, including three airlines with separate and distinct U.S. FAA Part 121 Air Carrier certificates, ATSG provides aircraft leasing, air cargo lift, passenger ACMI and charter services, aircraft maintenance services and airport ground services.
