Anyone know why the Atlas Air 767 is visiting Palm Beach International today. I was told there are a total of 4 charters coming in today. Aircraft parked at gate C5 which is used by Delta/Air Canada. Heard rumors that is involves a big party/event in Boca Raton. Any and all info would be greatly appreciated.

Quoting wjcandee (Reply 1): There were a number of BSK 738 fights to PBI from various points in Canada today. Possibly connected?
Yes, they are connected. I have confirmed that all the charters were from Canada, including the Atlas 767. I have been told they will be leaving on Wednesday. Apparently there is some type of conference or event they are all in town for.

Quoting B727LVR (Reply 9): Is the Atlas 767 a PAX acft? If so when did they enter the passenger business? Or did they lease this aircraft to another operator?
Atlas has been flying passengers since October 2009 when they initiated service between IAH and LAD on behalf of Sonair with 2x 747-400's. The route was previously contracted by Sonair to World Airways with MD-11's.
In 2011 Atlas added 3 additional 747-400's and 1 767-300 configured for passengers. They are used for charters with various customers. Many more 767-300's are planned.
