Market Insight: Air freight does it? MSC's world dominance push takes off
Really exciting times
Atlas Air has ordered Boeing’s last-ever four 747-8Fs before the aircraft maker pulls the plug on production.
The aircraft will arrive between May and October 2022. Atlas said a number of its legacy 747-400F leases would be up for renewal in the coming years, and the order would give it “enhanced flexibility to balance future capacity needs with customer demand”. The aircraft will either be operated by Atlas for its customers, or be available for dry-leasing through its Titan Aviation subsidiary.
Meanwhile, DHL Express, has placed an order for an additional eight new Boeing 777 freighters. First deliveries are scheduled for 2022.
