Emirates SkyCargos freighter
will arrive at Luxembourg at 13.
With the arrival of SkyCargo's first freighter
here, we open a new chapter in our history and lay the foundation for a fruitful cooperation for the benefit of our customers.
China Postal's agreement with Boeing -- which also includes the purchase of seven Boeing 757-200s that the airline plans to convert into freighters
-- marks the largest purchase order in the airline's history.
This demand growth will spur the world freighter
fleet to expand by more than half, from the current 1,690 airplanes to 2,730 airplanes by the end of the forecast period.
We are soon going to start negotiations with Boeing for a large number of 767 conversions to freighters
and we will place an order with Boeing as, unfortunately, Airbus is not making up its mind if they will convert our A330s to freighters
or not," Al Baker said.
Our decision to invest in the 777 freighter
helps ensure that we are well positioned to serve our customers' long-term needs.
The A330-200 freighter
can carry up to 64 metric tonnes of cargo and can fly up to 7,400 kilometres non-stop.
The Boeing conversion program gives us the flexibility to address our growing need for freighter
aircraft in a timely and efficient manner - making best use of ANA's existing resources - as we forge ahead with our plans to create a new cargo airline and renew our fleet.
Other carriers flying freighters
from Asian destinations to DFW include Korean Air, China Airlines, China Cargo Airlines and EVA Air.
