History

The airline was established in 1978 and started operations in 1979. It was formed as US Airways and later known as Interstate Airlines. The current name was adopted in 1988. On 1 October 1994 ICX International Cargo Express was merged into Air Transport International, which was itself acquired by the Brink's Company in February 1998. ATI was sold in 2006 to Cargo Holdings International (CHI). It has 495 employees.

Cargo Aircraft Management was the lead customer for the Boeing 767 freighter conversion program. In the 12 months since ATI's sale by Brinks to CHI, worldwide airline profits have fallen significantly, however, ATI continues to negate this trend. Delivery of fully mondernized and fuel efficient B767PF Aircraft is on track for June 2008.

On 2 November, 2007, Cargo Holdings International, the parent company of ATI entered into an agreement to be acquired by Wilmington, OH-based ABX Holdings, Inc. The company along with sister company Capital Cargo International Airlines will be run as separate companies under the ABX Holdings umbrella.
