Nine Boeing 767 conversions for Atlas Air

October 13 - Boeing and Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings have announced an order to convert nine 767 passenger aircraft into Boeing Converted Freighters (BCF). Four of the orders were previously announced at the Farnborough International Airshow in July, attr

Atlas Air Worldwide, based in Purchase, New York, has an all-Boeing fleet. The airline's president and ceo William J. Flynn said: "Boeing has been a longtime and trusted partner as we've built our fleet and business."

Through its freighter conversion programme, Boeing transitions passenger airplanes into freighters, extending the economic life of the airplane.

"We look forward to supporting Atlas with our Boeing Converted Freighters as it expand its freighter operations," said Rick Anderson, vice president of sales and marketing, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services.

Boeing's current market outlook forecasts a need for 400 widebody conversions over the next two decades, with strong demand for 767 freighter conversions due to a rise in e-commerce.
