Atlas provides ACMI contracts to a number of major airlines, including British Airways, Emirates, Qantas and Air New Zealand, among others. Under an ACMI or “wet lease” contract, customers receive a dedicated aircraft that is crewed, maintained and insured by Atlas in exchange for agreed-upon rates and level of operation, enabling customers to utilize Atlas’ scale and efficiencies to expand their presence in the world’s cargo markets.
Atlas also provides charter services tailored to meet the individual needs of the customer. An Atlas charter includes not only aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance, but also all landing/traffic permits, fuel, air waybill, aircraft handling and Atlas’ on-demand customer service center.
To provide these services, Atlas maintains an impressive fleet of B747 freighter aircraft, the most efficient and cost-effective aerial platform for transporting intercontinental shipments of heavy freight.
Through superior maintenance programs, management and commitment to quality, Atlas has an on-time performance that is unsurpassed. The Atlas fleet is fully certified to operate under conditions of very restricted visibility and is 100 percent Stage III/Chapter III compliant.
Founded in 1993 with one B747-200 contracted to China Airlines, Atlas expanded rapidly until, by the end of 2000, the Company’s fleet had grown to 36 aircraft. In 2001, AAWW was formed, and in November of that year, it acquired Polar Air Cargo Worldwide, Inc. (Polar) – a synergistic partner for Atlas, providing scheduled airport-to-airport wide-body service to global express operators, international freight forwarders and other shipping
