Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) delivers a B767-300 converted freighter to Mexico’s Aerotransportes Mas de Carga (MasAir). The aircraft is going to MasAir under a five-year dry lease agreement with ATSG subsidiary Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM).
MasAir provides scheduled ACMI charter air cargo services on more than 20 routes in Latin America and the US.
Luis Sierra, CEO of MasAir says: “We are truly excited to receive this first aircraft from CAM that marks the start of a programme 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.”
Mike Berger, chief commercial officer of ATSG adds: “We are excited to support CAM’s first dry-lease customer in Mexico. 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.”
MasAir Cargo Airline is a Mexico City-based airline, operating freighters since 1992 and uplifting nearly 40,000 tonnes of cargo per year. MasAir started with B707Fs, moved up to DC8-71s, and since 2001 it has operated B767-300Fs. MasAir is an IATA member and holds IOSA and ISAGO certifications.
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. MasAir is now growing its new ACMI division.
