On 19 November, Wroclaw-based SkyTaxi took delivery of a freighter-converted 767-200F (23021) on lease from Air Transport Services Group’s CAM leasing subsidiary. The freighter was currently operating in the fleet of ATSG’s charter and full-service airline, ABX Air.

Not only does the 767F represent a monumental step for SkyTaxi – which currently operates just two Saab 340s – this will also be Poland’s first widebody freighter. The aircraft will be based at Rzeszów’s Jasionka International Airport (RZE) and is expected to enter commercial service before year’s end, according to SkyTaxi. Local government officials and the airport have been setting the foundation for expanded cargo operations at RZE for some time now. Late last year, the airport completed work on a new cargo terminal.

Moving into 2019, SkyTaxi has an option with Cargo Aircraft Management for a second 767-200F for delivery in 2019.
