    I'm not sure I understand the business structure of Air Transport Services Group or whether it owns these two carriers involved with Amazon or is just some sort of industry trade group/agent coordinating stuff. Yip ? :

    "Air Transport Services Group, Inc. is a leading provider of air cargo transportation and related services to domestic and foreign air carriers and other companies that outsource their air cargo lift requirements. Through its principal subsidiaries, including two airlines with separate and distinct U.S. FAA Part 121 Air Carrier certificates, ATSG provides air cargo lift, aircraft leasing, aircraft maintenance services, and airport ground services."

    FYI:

    "Under the agreement, Atlas Air Worldwide subsidiary Atlas Air will operate 20 767-300Fs on a crew, maintenance and insurance contract with Amazon for an initial term of seven years. Operations are slated to start in the second half of this year and get up to full service in 2018."

    Little bit of an update. Still doesn't indicate whether Amazon wants their own airline vs using Atlas:

    According to the Houston Business Journal, the e-commerce company is currently in talks with United Airlines regarding the possible acquisition and conversion of some of its oldest passenger-configured B767s.
