Air Transport Services Group, Inc. subsidiary Omni Air International (Omni) has been activated under Stage I of the Civil Reserve Air Fleet (CRAF) program to support the U.S. military’s efforts in Afghanistan.

Omni is prepared to provide three Boeing 777-200 passenger aircraft to further assist in the ongoing operation.

Omni is the largest provider of passenger charter service to the Department of Defense and other government agencies.

ATSG and the company’s three airline subsidiaries have been providing services to the Department of Defense since the 1990s.

Omni has provided airlift services to assist in personnel movement and humanitarian efforts around the globe and will continue this work as part of the CRAF program to augment the military’s own capability.
