Mexico’s Aerotransportes Mas de Carga (MasAir) has taken delivery of an ATSG-owned B767-300 converted freighter as it looks to expand its ACMI services.
The aircraft is going to the Mexican airline under a five-year dry lease agreement with ATSG subsidiary Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM).
Luis Sierra, Chief Executive of MasAir stated, “We are truly excited to receive this first aircraft from CAM that marks the start of a program to expand our ACMI services for our customers while continuing to provide excellent service and performance, initially in the Americas, setting our eyes on new horizons around the world.”
MasAir provides scheduled ACMI charter air cargo services on more than 20 routes in Latin America and the US. MasAir started with B707Fs, moved up to DC8-71s, and since 2001 it has operated B767-300Fs.
“We are excited to support CAM’s first dry-lease customer in Mexico,” said Mike Berger, Chief Commercial Officer of ATSG. “As the world’s largest lessor of 767 converted freighters, CAM provides dry leasing customers the opportunity to cost-effectively grow capacity to meet market demands.”
Since December 2018, MasAir has been under a new ownership structure (with Discovery Americas, a leading Mexican Private Equity Fund, as majority shareholder) and management.
As a leading scheduled and charter operator, MasAir is now growing its new ACMI division.
