Turkish Airlines has ordered three Boeing 777 Freighters.
The order comes just weeks after the carrier took delivery of
two of the large cargo jets as part of its plan to further expand
its freight business.
"These freighter orders will surely
contribute to our significant target for establishing a young and
efficient cargo fleet," said M. İlker Aycı, Chairman of the Board
and the Executive Committee of Turkish Airlines. "The new aircraft
will be delivered this year and will provide us with additional
flexibility to serve more destinations while we continue to
develop our global freight service."
The 777 Freighter is
the 777-200LR (Longer Range) passenger airplane. The jet can fly
4,900 nautical miles (9,070 kilometers) with a full payload of 112
tons (102 metric tonnes or 102,000 kg).
"The 777 Freighter is
the largest and most capable twin-engine freighter in the world
today," said Marty Bentrott, senior vice president of Sales,
Middle East, Turkey, Russia, Central Asia and Africa, Boeing
Commercial Airplanes. "We're pleased world-class customers like
Turkish Airlines recognize the value of the 777 Freighter's long
range and large payload capability."
