Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (New York) today announced the acquisition of a Boeing 777 Freighter by its dry-leasing subsidiary, Titan Aviation. The aircraft is currently on long-term lease to AeroLogic GmbH (Leipzig), a cargo airline based in Germany and a joint venture of DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo AG.
“With the purchase of this 777 freighter, we gain entry into an attractive aircraft type consistent with our strategy of investing in new technology that creates superior value for our customers,” said William J. Flynn, President and Chief Executive Officer, Atlas Air Worldwide.
“This deal represents an important part of our plan to grow Titan’s dry-leasing platform through selective investments in aircraft with existing leases that support leading operators in the airfreight industry. While Titan is principally a cargo aircraft dry lessor, its portfolio includes passenger narrow-body aircraft, engines and related equipment. It also provides customers expertise in asset management, passenger-to-freighter conversion, and other technical services.”
Norddeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale (NORD/LB), a leading aircraft financier based in Hanover, Germany, provided financing for the 2010 vintage aircraft.
AeroLogic GmbH was founded in September 2007 with headquarters in Schkeuditz/Leipzig, Germany. The AeroLogic fleet is composed of eight Boeing 777Fs.

AeroLogic (Leipzig/Halle), the joint cargo airline of DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo, yesterday (June 19) launched operations after receiving its AOC. The airline will initially serve the route Leipzig – Bahrain – Singapore – Delhi – Leipzig on weekdays and the route Leipzig – Tashkent – Hong Kong – Tashkent – Leipzig on weekends. By 2010, the airline will gradually expand the network to offer new direct connections to most of Asia’s major metropolitan areas.
The new airline will operate with eight leased new Boeing 777F freighters, the first four of which are expected to be delivered this year. The 777F has a maximum payload capacity of 103 tons and can fly distances of over 9000 km, which enables non-stop flights from AeroLogic’s home base of Leipzig/Halle to key Asian growth markets.
AeroLogic (Leipzig) took delivery of its first (of eight) new Boeing 777-FZN (D-AALA, msn 36001) on May 12 via Deucalion Capital. The new cargo airline is a joint venture between Lufthansa Cargo and DHL Express and is expected to launch operations in the coming weeks.
