Titan Aircraft Investments, the joint venture between Titan Aviation Holdings, Inc. and Bain Capital Credit, have announced the placement of a Boeing 737-800SF converted freighter on long-term dry lease with ASL Aviation Holdings.
Titan Aviation Holdings, a subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc., will manage the aircraft.
Fergus Wilson, ASL Aviation Holding’s Group Fleet and Leasing Director, said: “We are looking forward to this Boeing 737-800SF entering service with ASL in the coming weeks and to a successful business relationship with Titan. The aircraft’s arrival will mark another step forward in ASL’s fleet renewal program which has already seen our 737-800NG fleet outgrow our 737 classic fleet.”
ASL Aviation Holdings, a global aviation services company with airlines based in Europe, South Africa and Asia, is a world leader in ACMI airline operations serving major cargo and passenger airlines.
Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, ASL’s six airlines include ASL Airlines Ireland, ASL Airlines Belgium, ASL Airlines France and ASL Airlines United Kingdom in Europe and associate and joint venture airlines FlySafair in South Africa and K-Mile Asia in Thailand. The group also includes MRO X-airservices, airlines services companies and several leasing entities.
ASL Aviation Holdings operates cargo services for the world’s leading express parcel integrators and online retailers. Group airlines also operate scheduled and charter passenger services under its own airline brands on domestic, international, and intercontinental routes in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, North America and Africa.
ASL has a global team of 3,000 people of 51 nationalities. The Group has a fleet of 130 aircraft that includes 7 aircraft types ranging from the turbo prop ATR 72 to the Boeing 747. ASL’s agreement with Boeing for 30 firm slots and 10 options for Boeing 737-800BCF ‘Boeing Converted Freighters’, will see the entry into service of the twentieth aircraft from that programme later this year.
