Under a seven-year lease, SkyTaxi has received a Boeing 767-200 converted freighter from Air Transport Services Group, Inc (ATSG). The deal includes the option of leasing a second 767-200 freighter.
Cargo Aircraft Management, subsidiary of ATSG, has delivered a Boeing 767-200 converted freighter to the Polish carrier SkyTaxi.

The cooperation with ATSG and their sister companies is great, and the huge support, understanding and guidance is essential. The Boeing 767 freighter is going to be a game-changing aircraft in SkyTaxi’s fleet.
