LONDON – Boeing has announced that Western Global Airlines has signed a firm order for two 777 Freighters.
This deal was finalized last month and initially appeared as unidentified in Boeing’s order backlog.
Western Global’s order includes the option to acquire an additional unit if it so wishes.
Commenting on the news was Jim Neff, the CEO & Founder of Western Global Airlines:
“Western Global is pleased to acquire new-build 777 Freighter aircraft.”
“As the world’s fastest-growing cargo airline, we have determined that augmenting our existing fleet with new 777 Freighters will enable us to best serve our customers while providing a clear path to our future fleet plans”.
Also commenting on the news was Ihssane Mounir, the Senior VP of Commercial Sales & Marketing at Boeing:
“The addition of 777 Freighters will enable Western Global to continue its growth, providing increased capability and flexibility to its operations”.
“These new freighters will complement its existing all-Boeing fleet and we are committed to deepening the partnership between our companies, which has existed since Western Global’s inception.”
Boeing predicts that the global freighter demand will grow by over 70% in the next 20 years, hence why carriers such as Western Global are ordering these aircraft.
