According to ATI's website www.airtransport.cc, it also operates passenger charter flights. Anybody knows what routes? If they are inclusive tour fllights, what agencies book them? Thank you for the data.

They don't operate any full passenger layout a/c. They have DC-8 combis with a passenger cabin in the rear that seats 32 passengers.

As for the routes for passenger charters, it's where ever the company or individual who chartered the a/c wants them to fly. ATI isn't a passenger charter operator along the lines of Ryan International, Pace Airlines, etc. They don't fly vacation charters. They do stuff like transporting race horses, and the owner(s) or the horses, trainers, vets, etc., would fly in the passenger cabin. Another example is that they send aid workers and supplies from AmeriCares to Peru every few months when ATI sends an a/c down that way for maintenance.

ATI is primarily a cargo airline that just happens to have some combis in their fleet.

This is one of ATI's DC-8-62/72 Combi charter operations, from BWI to the most northerly US military installation at Thule, near the northern tip of Greenland, about 800 naut. mi. from the North Pole.

The combis get used far and away mostly for AMC (military) flights. And they're popular enough that ATI is now using a reeengined 8 for the service. Previously, it used exclusively non-reengined versions for the combis.

One other use not mentioned above is for music tours. Some european band hired them for its world tour a few years ago.

The re-engined DC-8-72CF in the 2nd photo in Reply 1 was delivered as a -62CF to Finnair in 1969. All 3 AY -62CFs were sold to the French Air Force, this one in 1981. All were then re-engined as -72CFs. This one spent about 25 years with the French Air Force before going to ATI.

The same aircraft with it's two previous operators:
