Cargojet Airways has become the launch customer for Mammoth Freighters’ new 777-200LR freighter.
Canada-based Cargojet has signed for two initial 777-200LRMF freighters with additional options for two 300ERMFs and two more 200LRMFs.
MSN 29742, the prototype (conformity) article for certification, will be the first aircraft delivered to Cargojet. The aircraft is expected to begin the conversion process in mid-2022 with delivery to Cargojet in the second half of 2023.
Cargojet provides time sensitive premium air cargo services to all major cities across North America, offering dedicated ACMI and international charter services and carrying more than 25,000,000 pounds of cargo weekly.
Mammoth Freighters’ co-CEO Bill Tarpley said: “We are grateful and excited that Mammoth has been selected by Cargojet to bring this conversion to market and demonstrate the significance of our product to the world. This is the next generation of converted freighters that have improved on-wing performance while using less fuel and emitting less carbon than the current aging widebody fleet.”
