China Airlines Signs MOU for 6 Boeing 777 Freighters

China Airlines has signed a MOU with Boeing for six 777 Freighters, three firm and a further three on option.

China Airlines plans to operate these 777F mainly to Europe and North America.

The Boeing 777F will replace some older 747-400F currently in service, giving the airline a significant saving of around 20% in fuel costs.

The Boeing 777F and 747-400F ULDs are also highly compatible.

Between 2014 and 2016, China Airlines added a total of 10 Boeing 777-300ER passenger aircraft to its fleet, and as the 777F and 777-300ER are equipped with the same GE90 engine this will allow the airline to keep maintenance costs down. It also helps with pilot deployment as a Boeing 777-300ER pilot can fly a 777F after receiving the necessary training.
