Global Crossing Airlines Group has announced that is has reached an agreement to lease an additional A321 freighter for delivery in October 2023 from Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM), a subsidiary of Air Transport Services Group.
“We are pleased to be able to lease our first A321 freighter from CAM, a worldwide leader in cargo aircraft conversions and leasing, and we greatly appreciate ATSG’s support of our team and our business plan. Our A321F fleet has performed extremely well – with better fuel burn, and load and unload times for both main deck and lower belly of less than 45 minutes. The A321F takes 50% more volume than its narrowbody competitor and is quickly shaping up to be the 757 freighter replacement aircraft. Along with our customers, we are extremely pleased with the A321F performance and we will continue to grow our fleet of A321 freighters along with the increasing demand for the aircraft,” said Ed Wegel, Chair and CEO of GlobalX.
“ATSG is excited to partner with GlobalX as they continue their transformational growth,” stated Paul Chase, chief commercial officer for ATSG. “We continue to seek partnerships that expand our global leasing footprint with companies that focus on the customer by providing world class service and reliability.”
