Turkish Airlines announces order for three B-777F airplanes
They will help airline to further expand its freight business
Boeing and Turkish Airlines announced that the carrier ordered three more 777 Freighter airplanes in December 2017. The new order came weeks after the carrier took delivery of two of the large cargo jets as part of its plan to further expand its freight business.
The 777 Freighter is the range twin-engine freighter and is based on the 777/200LR (Longer Range) passenger plane. 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 aircraft's range capability translates into significant savings for airlines: fewer stops and associated landing fees, less congestion at transfer hubs, lower cargo handling costs and shorter cargo delivery times.
