The aeroplanes will be operated by Emirates SkyCargo, adding to its fleet of 11 777 Freighters. At last November’s Dubai Airshow, Emirates announced a $1 billion investment to expand its air cargo capacity, including two new 777 Freighters that joined Emirates’ fleet this year.
Emirates was a launch customer for the 777 Freighter and is currently the world’s largest operator of the 777 family, with nearly 150 of the aeroplane type in its fleet. Boeing’s best-selling freighter, the 777F, is the world’s largest, longest-range and most capable twin-engine freighter flying today, with 17% lower fuel use and CO2 emissions than prior aeroplanes.
HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline and Group, said: “Emirates is investing in new freighters so that we can continue to serve customer demand with the latest fuel-efficient aircraft. This order reflects Emirates’ confidence in air freight demand and overall aviation sector growth. It lays the ground for our continued growth, driven by the reach of our diverse global network, the advanced handling infrastructure at our Dubai hub, and the tailored transport solutions that Emirates has developed to serve our varied customers’ needs.”
“We value the trust that Emirates has repeatedly placed in its all-Boeing freighter fleet,” said Stan Deal, president and chief executive officer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The expansion of Emirates’ fleet with these additional fuel-efficient 777 Freighters will enable the airline to support its growing cargo market demand, transporting goods rapidly and efficiently from origin to destination in the Middle East and around the world.”
