LONDON – Boeing has today announced an order from Atlas Air Worldwide for four Boeing 777 Freighters.
This order was made in December 2021 but was only announced today by the manufacturer.
Commenting on the deal was John Dietrich, Atlas Air Worldwide’s President, and CEO who expressed excitement over this order.
“We are excited to expand our fleet and service offerings for our existing and prospective customers with these four new 777s.”
“With the best team in the industry as well as our focus on innovation and prudent fleet management, Atlas is serving the evolving needs of the global supply chain and delivering value for our customers”.
Also commenting on the news was Ihssane Mounir, Boeing’s Senior VP of Commercial Sales & Marketing who was honored over this deal being made.
“We are honored that Atlas Air Worldwide, as a global leader in airfreight, has once again selected to grow with Boeing and our freighter family. These new 777 Freighters provide Atlas with more capacity, fuel efficiency, and operational flexibility for its customers”.
“As air cargo demand continues to grow, we’re confident that the efficiency, capability, and flexibility of our freighter family will meet customer needs now and in the future.”
With this being the final order of 2021, as far as we know, the manufacturer will announce its full-year 2021 orders and deliveries in around five days’ time, where we can then see the full breakdown.
In all, this is another strong order for the Freighter wing of the manufacturer’s business, especially as it was continuing on the success the freighter programs had at the Dubai Air Show 2021.
