Wilmington-based ATSG delivers freighter to Polish company

WILMINGTON — Air Transport Services Group Inc. announced the delivery by its Cargo Aircraft Management subsidiary of a Boeing 767-200 converted freighter to SkyTaxi of Poland under a seven-year lease.

Cargo Aircraft Management also has granted SkyTaxi an option to lease a second Boeing 767-200 freighter for delivery in 2019.

SkyTaxi currently operates two Saab 340 aircraft from its home base at Copernicus Airport Wrocław.

Wojciech Nocun, the spokesman of SkyTaxi, said, “We are delighted to introduce this widebody freighter into our fleet. The cooperation with ATSG and their sister companies is great, and the huge support, understanding and guidance is essential. The Boeing 767 freighter is going to be a game-changing aircraft in SkyTaxi’s fleet. We will join the growing cargo market community and as we speak, we finalize arrangements with major brokers for the introduction of the freighter for their customers — right in time for the peak season before Christmas.”
