Steen was appointed CEO of Atlas Air in June 2023. Prior to that he had served as chief commercial officer since 2007, and has more than thirty years of experience in global aviation and logistics with DHL, Exel and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

Atlas Air recently decided to cease providing CMI service for Amazon by 2025 as part of its ‘One Atlas’ strategy. Amazon transferred two of its seventeen 767-300Fs on June 25 to ATSG’s ABX Air from Atlas Air and will transition its ten Atlas-operated 737-800BCFs to Sun Country Airlines.

To fulfill the ‘One Atlas’ goals established in 2023 to achieve high utilization and more lucrative international flying, Atlas acquired two PW4000-powered production 747-400Fs from Silk Way West Airlines and two CF6-powered production -400Fs from Jetran in May.

In addition to the 747-400Fs, Atlas ordered two more 777Fs and expects to operate two of the Boeing production freighters for French shipping group CMA CGM on a CMI basis by yearend.

The 30th Cargo Facts Symposium will take place Oct. 14-16 at the Omni Hotel in San Diego. Gain valuable insights, success strategies, and networking opportunities at this special anniversary event. Learn more and register today to take advantage of our early-bird sale.
