LONDON – Cargo carrier Amerijet has today announced the introduction of six Boeing 757-200 Freighters into its fleet.
This is part of the airline’s strategy to expand and modernize its fleets, which was revealed around two years ago.
The six aircraft will join the six 767-200 and eight 767-300 freighters in the fleet, bringing its total fleet count to 20.
Commenting on the news was Tim Strauss, Amerijet’s CEO:
“I’m incredibly proud of our employees who worked tirelessly to bring the B757 project to fruition.”
“These aircraft will be a wonderful addition to our fleet, giving us a platform for continued growth as we approach 50 years of continuous service from our home base in Miami, Florida”.
It is understood the aircraft will operate on flights to the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, and Europe.
This is significant news for the carrier as it has most definitely benefitted from the influx in cargo operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
