阿特拉斯扩充机队

阿特拉斯集团从Altavair租赁了1架波音747-400ERF。该架货机自2003年至今由大韩航空运营。去年,Altavair收购了该架飞机及另一架姐妹机。另一架飞机预计将在近期离开大韩航空机队,并同样租赁给阿特拉斯。 考虑到租赁客户的增速,阿特拉斯机队扩充波音747系列飞机并不意外。上个月,阿特拉斯集团宣布与香港货运航空签署了租赁服务协议,为其提供3架波音747-400货机运力。其中,第一架飞机于今年9月份投入运营(服役于亚洲-美国航线),第二架、第三架飞机将于2018年投入运营。此外,阿特拉斯集团还与另外3家亚洲航空签订了租赁服务协议,包括国泰航空(2架波音747-8F)、韩亚航空(1架波音747-400F)以及金鹏航空(1架波音747-400F)。
