Air Transport Services Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATSG) announced today that it deployed a Boeing 767-300 converted freighter in June in support of the DHL Express network in Asia under the terms of a stand-alone ACMI agreement with DHL-Bahrain. This agreement is to provide capacity support for general express freight and delivery of COVID-19 related relief supplies to Sydney, Australia. ATSG subsidiary Air Transport International (ATI) is operating the flights from Hong Kong to Sydney via Guam.
An additional Boeing 767 has been deployed under a separate ACMI agreement between DHL Express and ATSG to serve routes from Chicago O’Hare Airport (US) to Cologne Bonn Airport (Germany) via East Midlands Airport (England). ATSG subsidiary ABX Air is operating this route to provide DHL additional capacity to meet the high level of service expected within its network.
The freighters are leased from ATSG subsidiary Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM) and bring ATSG’s support of DHL's network to sixteen Boeing 767 aircraft.
Mike Berger, chief commercial officer of ATSG, said: “These ACMI agreements further strengthen our long-term relationship with DHL. We continue to develop opportunities to support express operators across the globe with our available Boeing 767 capacity.”
