The largest lessor of 767Fs by portfolio size, U.S.-based Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM) continues to convert 767-300ERs and is on track to place at least ten 767Fs on dry-leases with customers UPS and Amazon over the course of 2020.
While the majority of CAM’s 767F portfolio is currently deployed to carriers based in, or operating in the United States, CAM and its parent ATSG see opportunities outside of the United States for 767F flying. The path to placing more 767Fs on international AOC’s may mean additional investments in global companies.
In terms of market reach, “We do look to, to broaden ourselves out,” said Mike Berger, chief commercial officer of ATSG. Southeast Asian countries including Malaysia, South Korea, Vietnam and Indonesia offer potential for expanded medium widebody freighter operations, he added.
CAM already dry leases aircraft to customers based in Southeast Asia, and to Europe through its affiliate ATSG West Leasing.
Recognizing the company’s current North American focus, “We’re very interested in furthering our scope outside the U.S., said Berger. “We look forward to that not only in 2020, but the next coming years.”
