亚马逊航空,ATSG租赁货机数不断攀升,并加强ATSG的股份所有权

近期,亚马逊宣布将向航空运输服务集团(ATSG)的租赁子公司货运飞机管理公司(CAM)另行租赁10架波音767-300型改造货机,以上飞机将于2019年与2020年,每年交付5架,租赁周期为10年,并包含为期3年的合同续延选项。亚马逊还将目前从CAM租赁的12架波音767-200BDSF以及8架波音767-300BDSF的租赁协议分别延长了两年和三年 。 然而,在以上10架新增租赁货机、以及在之前的20架租赁货机的基础上,亚马逊航空(Amazon Air)机队扩编可能还会继续,根据协议约定,亚马逊最多还会向ATSG申请17架额外的租赁货机,合计的波音767机型规模将达到47架。 所有租赁货机,将由ATSG下属的航空公司为亚马逊提供运营服务。具体服务的框架,类似于2016年,亚马逊和ATSG当时所签署的20架货机租赁协议。作为该协议的一部分,亚马逊有权购买最多高达19.9%的ATSG股份所有权。该认股权证将于2021年3月到期,关于亚马逊是否行使权利目前尚不清楚。 通过此次10架货机的交易协议,亚马逊进一步拥有了对ATSG的所有权从19.9%继续增加至最高达到33.2%的认购期权。该部分认购期权与ATSG的股票价格紧密相关。目前,ATSG的股票为每股21.53美元,相比2016年当时的每股9.73美元,增长了至少一倍。在2026年1月之前,如果亚马逊再行租赁17架货机,其对于ATSG的认购期权预计将从目前的33.2%扩大到39.9%。 亚马逊航空的机队扩编并不出人意料。上个月,ATSG和阿特拉斯航空集团(Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings)各自履行了协议要求,将20架波音767改造租赁货机交付给了亚马逊,并为亚马逊提供运营服务。业内人士和金融分析师认为,亚马逊机队扩展到45架货机以上,仅仅只是时间问题。近期,《货运事实》经分析认为,已经有超过40架货机,在以各种形式为亚马逊提供运营服务。 ATSG与美国航空(AA)达成协议,未来三年,ATSG将从美国航空获得20架波音767-300ER退役客机。在该协议达成后仅仅1天,亚马逊与ATSG宣布了此次10架货机的交易协议。通过美国航空流转出来的退役客机,ATSG会逐步部分或全部转换为货机配置,并在重新交付给货运市场。至少,其中部分的飞机资源,最终会租赁给类似于像亚马逊这样的重要客户。 在一系列新协议签署之后,问题变成了,50架货机或者67架货机(若购买期权全部履行),是否可以满足亚马逊航空的运营需求?2016年,亚马逊与ATSG和阿特拉斯的租赁协议在两个月之内相继宣布,历史是否会重演?目前,亚马逊没有表示还要租赁更多的货机,同时,阿特拉斯也没有富余的波音767机型储备。然而,在一个以发展速度著称的行业中,一切皆有可能。
