Atlas Air Worldwide has received a permit to fly in and out of the airport. It is the second cargo airline to receive a permit from the airport this year. The first was American Transport Services Group. Both fly cargo shipments for Amazon.

“Stockton Airport is located in a prime location for transporting goods throughout Northern California,” said airport director Harry Mavrogenes.

Amazon has two fulfillment centers in Tracy and another in Patterson.

A spokesman for Atlas said there was not a flight schedule in place for the airline, but it is anticipated that the frequency will increase during the busy holiday season.

Atlas Worldwide has also announced a deal with Boeing to increase its order to convert 767 widebody passenger jets into cargo planes from four planes to nine.
