Boeing, Atlas Air Agree 767 PTF Contract

Boeing has entered into an agreement with Atlas Air to convert nine 767 passenger aircraft into freighters.

Four of the orders were previously announced at the Farnborough International Airshow in July, attributed to an unidentified customer.

New York-based Atlas currently operates an all-Boeing fleet of 81 aircraft.

Rick Anderson, vice-president of sales and marketing, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, said: “Our freighter conversion programme not only provides customers with world-class Boeing platforms, we also offer global support and the assurance of a Boeing-backed programme.”

In its current market outlook, the OEM has forecast demand for 400 widebody conversions over the next two decades, with strong demand for 767 freighter conversions brought about by a rise in e-commerce.
