Their founder, the late Michael Chowdry, observed in the early 1990s that passenger airlines were losing money and parking aircraft while the limited number of high-gross-weight, long-haul freighters were all fully utilized.

Atlas began operations in 1993 with one aircraft, a Boeing 747-200. During the 1990s, Atlas experienced substantial growth as customers realized the benefits of long-term leasing to meet their demands.

After restructuring in 2004, AAWW began trading on NASDAQ in 2006 and was also named to the Russell 2000 Index. In September 2006, the company ordered 12 new-technology Boeing 747-8 freighters.

Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (AAWW) is the parent company of Atlas Air, Inc. and the majority owner and controlling shareholder of Polar Air Cargo Worldwide, Inc. They're the leading provider of aircraft and outsourced solutions to the global airfreight industry, listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market and one of the Russell 2000.


Today, Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. is proud to be the world’s largest operator of Boeing 747 freighter aircraft and their strategic innovations continue to redefine air cargo.
