Global Crossing Airlines Group (GlobalX) will lease an A321 passenger to freighter (P2F) aircraft from Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM), a subsidiary of Air Transport Services Group (ATSG).
The aircraft is set to be delivered in October this year.
“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,” said Ed Wegel, chair and chief executive of GlobalX.
“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.
“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.”
GlobalX took delivery of its second Airbus A321 passenger to freighter (P2F) conversion in June.
It received its first A321P2F in December last year after conversion by ST Engineering.
