ANA commits to two 767 converted freighters
All Nippon Airways has exercised options for two Boeing 767-300 converted freighters, the Chicago-based airplane manufacturer said.
The planes will be employed in ANA’s joint venture cargo operation with Japan Post, Nippon Express and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, known as ANA & JP Express.
ANA was the launch customer for the 767 freighter conversion program in October 2005 with an original order for three planes.
The first plane is expected to be completed by the end of 2007.
In other news, Boeing said Hong Kong-based Dragonair has taken delivery of a 747-400 converted freighter that it bought from Singapore Airlines.
