It’s been brewing for a while, but now FedEx has confirmed that it is ordering 50 767 freighters, with an option for 50 more to replace its MD10s. As this article notes, the cost is likely in the region of $4.2bn, or “very favourable” terms, according to FedEx. In another win for the US plane maker, EVA Air finalised an order for five 777 freighters. And in other, smaller freighter news, Hawaiian Airlines is to buy three all-cargo ATR-72s for inter-island services.
