Personalised Air Freight Solutions. Wherever, whenever.

Reliable, safe and efficient logistics as well as maintenance and leasing services.

We have been in the Air cargo logistics business since 1962 and know our business as well as yours. Apart from swiftly sending goods, we handle aircraft service and maintenance as well as lease out aircraft.

Express Air Logistics

West Atlantic Cargo Airlines specializes in tailored aircraft solutions for Global Integrators, National Mail Organizations, and other B2B e-commerce suppliers with both ad-hoc and long-term demand for cargo aircraft. With more than 50 years of continuous operating experience we specialize in wet leasing, ACMI, and full charter services, supporting both local and International customers worldwide.

With a fleet of more than 50 aircraft, which includes ATR-72-F, Boeing 737-300 / 400 / 800 Freighters, and the Boeing 757-200, we presently cover a capacity range from 6.5 to 40 metric tonnes.  Focus is on safe operations, high reliability, and customer service.

West Atlantic holds two Air Operating Certificates, one in the UK and one in Sweden, which together operated over 24,000 flights in 2017 whilst serving more than 50 destinations.

Aircraft Sales & Leasing

West Atlantic Aircraft Management (WAAM) specializes in the purchase, sale and dry leasing of aircraft and engine types operated by West Atlantic. We have expertise in cargo aircraft leasing, financing and operational support. Through our two Operating Certificates we are able to provide bespoke, turnkey wet to dry leasing solutions.

WAAM has a long and successful history of aircraft and engine transactions independently as well as in close cooperation with our partners.  This includes a significant number of transactions with ATP, ATR, and Boeing 737 aircraft.  Transactions can be supplemented with additional services including spares, continued airworthiness services (CAMO), pilot training, engineering support and more.

Maintenance Services

As part of our strategy to provide efficient air freight solutions, we are highly focused on maintenance.

Base maintenance is performed at our hangar facilities in East Midlands (UK), Isle of Man (UK), and Oslo (Norway).
