Titan Aircraft Investments (TAI), the freighter leasing joint venture between Atlas Air Worldwide’s Titan Aviation and Bain Capital Credit, is adding 757 freighters to its portfolio as part of a deal with Miami-based Amerijet.
Under the agreement, TAI will place three 757-200PCFs on long-term lease to Amerijet.
The first two freighters are units 32400 and 32386, which TAI purchased from AerSale in November and December 2021, respectively, according to the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) registry. AerSale had previously placed those units on lease to Amerijet.
Cargo Facts believes the third 757 is unit 32387. AerSale confirmed to Cargo Facts that it still owns the aircraft but recently leased it to Amerijet.
The 2002-vintage unit 32400 (ex-American Airlines) arrived at Amerijet’s Miami (MIA) headquarters in September 2021 after conversion with Precision Aircraft Solutions at the AerSale facility in Goodyear (GYR). The 2001-vintage unit 32386 (also ex-American Airlines) joined its sister at MIA in December, and unit 32387 (ex-American Airlines) also recently arrived at MIA on March 28.
Atlas could not be reached for comment.
Amerijet recently said it planned to have six 757-200PCFs in operation by mid-April. Apart from the three ex-American 757s, the other three are ex-Icelandair units: one (29311) on lease from Nehalem 29311 LLC and two (26244 and 26245) on lease from Icelease.
Of the six 757s, Amerijet is currently only operating unit 29311.
