“At Amazon’s request, we have changed that schedule to lease them six 767s this year and four more in 2020. In late June, Cargo Aircraft Management deployed the first of the six. The second one entered service in early July, and the third is due later this month. The three others will be in service by peak season,” President and CEO Joe Hete said.
The contract signed in December 2018 originally foresaw deliveries of five freighters in 2019 and five more in 2020.
According to the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, Cargo Aircraft Management currently leases twenty-six freighters to Amazon.
