Air Transport Services Group, Inc. announced the completion of the merger of two of its airline subsidiaries, Air Transport International Inc. and Capital Cargo International Airlines, Inc.
The merger creates a single airline, ATI, with its headquarters in Little Rock, Ark., its operations center in Wilmington, Ohio, and its management team led by ATI president Dennis Manibusan.
ATI operates 13 aircraft, including seven Boeing 767 freighters, three Boeing 757 freighters and three DC-8 combi (combination passenger and main-deck cargo) aircraft. The three DC-8 combis are to be replaced soon with four Boeing 757 combis.
“This merger is the most significant of a number of steps we are taking throughout ATSG to better fit our airline overhead and operating cost structures to the airline operations we have today and expect to add in the future,” Joe Hete, president and CEO of ATSG, said.
