Emirates receives 13th Boeing 777 Freighter

Emirates SkyCargo Boeing 777 Freighter

Emirates Airline took delivery on 3 September of a Boeing 777 Freighter and two 777-300ERs.

These aircraft arrivals mark the 150th 777 into Emirates’ fleet. The carrier is the largest operator of the aircraft. Boeing says it is the first time in 15 years it has delivered three 777s at one time to a single customer.

Emirates now has 13 777 Freighters, which is capable of flying 4,900 nautical miles (9,070 kilometres) with a full payload at general cargo market densities.

The range capability translates into significant savings for cargo operators through fewer stops and associated landing fees, less congestion at transfer hubs, lower cargo handling costs and shorter cargo delivery times.

Emirates president, Sir Tim Clark, says the 777s give the airline range, reliability, and flexibility to efficiently serve close to 100 destinations on six continents.
