NAC – Northern Air Cargo (Anchorage) has added its first Boeing 767-300F freighter. Boeing 767-323 ER N379CX (msn 25199) was formerly operated by American Airlines as N372AA. It was delivered to NAC on February 7, 2018. N379CX is based in Miami and is operated for StratAir.
Previously Air Transport Services Group, Inc. stated its subsidiary, Cargo Aircraft Management, had reached agreement with Northern Aviation Services, Inc. for the lease of three Boeing 767-300 freighters to be operated by subsidiary Northern Air Cargo. The aircraft will provide service to its cargo brands Aloha Air Cargo based in Hawaii, StratAir based in Florida, and Northern Air Cargo (NAC) based in Alaska.
Under the agreements, CAM is leasing three 767-300 freighters to Northern Aviation Services, Inc. for seven-year terms, beginning with the first lease in October 2017. The agreements also provide for the potential lease of additional 767-300s from CAM in 2018. These long-term lease placements will add to the already greater than 80 percent of CAM’s 767 fleet contracted under multi-year dry lease.
Some of the leased 767-300s will replace CAM-owned 767-200/300s currently operating on an ACMI basis under ATSG’s Wet-2-Dry program, which allows carriers to prove their business case for 767s under ACMI arrangements, then transition to long-term dry lease arrangements.
