It’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago, we delivered the 100th 777 Freighter. The airplane went to China Southern.
The 100th 777 Freighter was delivered to China Southern.
Earlier this month, we booked a new order for five 777 Freighters from Korean Air. As the world’s largest and most capable twin-engine freighter with the lowest trip cost of any large freighter, we’re excited to see more orders and more deliveries for this airplane that launched just under 10 years ago.
The 777 Freighter is seen here during its first flight in July 2008.
We’re also excited that air cargo appears primed for growth after some slow years. We projecting that air cargo will grow at an annual rate of just under 5 percent for the next 20 years. And in the near-term, fuel savings and a stronger U.S. dollar equal good news for our customers.
Our commitment to the cargo industry is unrivaled. With our lineup of freighters, we’re in the perfect position to meet market demand as things continue to improve. You can check out our complete lineup of freighters on our special webpage.
