Atlas expands

Atlas will add another 747-8F to its fleet in November.

The Paris Air Show may have ended last week, but that hasn’t stopped the flow of news about freighter aircraft transactions. Yesterday it was China Southern, today it is Atlas.

In a formal announcement this morning, Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings (AAWW) confirmed several aircraft acquisitions and outlined plans for several future leasing contracts. Cargo Facts has previously reported some of this activity, but until now, AAWW had declined to confirm any of it.

These acquisitions, following as they do on the heels of recent orders, acquisitions, and returns to service announced by other carriers and lessors, indicate that some big industry players believe that air freight demand growth will continue, at least into the medium term.
