Western Global Airlines has placed a firm order for two Boeing 777 Freighters.
The agreement, which was finalised in January, also includes an additional purchase option.
Western Global Airlines CEO & founder Jim Neff said: “Western Global is pleased to acquire new-build 777 Freighter aircraft. As the world’s fastest growing cargo airline, we have determined that augmenting our existing fleet with new 777 Freighters will enable us to best serve our customers while providing a clear path to our future fleet plans.”
Boeing’s 777 Freighter has a range of 4,970 nautical miles and can carry a maximum structural payload of 107 metric tons.
“The addition of 777 Freighters will enable Western Global to continue its growth, providing increased capability and flexibility to its operations,” said Boeing’s senior vice president of commercial sales and marketing Ihssane Mounir.
“These new freighters will complement its existing all-Boeing fleet and we are committed to deepening the partnership between our companies, which has existed since Western Global’s inception.”
