SEATTLE, March, 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Boeing [NYSE:BA] and All Nippon Airways (ANA) announced the Japanese carrier has placed a new order for two 777 Freighters valued at $678 million according to list prices.
While ANA is a major operator of the 777 passenger jet, it has grown its cargo operation with the medium-sized 767 Freighter. In adding the 777 Freighter – the world’s largest and longest range twin-engine cargo jet – ANA is expanding its cargo capabilities just as the air freight market keeps growing at historically high rates.
“Air cargo is an essential part of global trade growth,” said Hiroshi Sugiguchi, Vice President, Corporate Planning & Administration, ANA Cargo. “We are committed to playing a critical role in further advancing Japan’s economic growth through trade and these new freighter airplanes will help us accomplish our goal. ANA will ensure that our cargo operations reflect the five-star service that we have garnered over the past several years.”
