Boeing and Turkish Airlines Announce New Order

Boeing and Turkish Airlines announced that the carrier ordered three more 777 Freighters 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 said to be the world's longest-range twin-engine freighter and is based on the 777-200LR passenger airplane. The airplane'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.

"These freighter orders will surely contribute to our significant target for establishing a young and efficient cargo fleet," said İlker Aycı, chairman, board and executive committee, Turkish Airlines.
