Boeing and Qatar Airways have finalized an order for five Boeing 777 Freighters on July 9. The order, worth $1.8 billion at current list prices was previously announced as a commitment at the Paris Air Show in June.
Qatar Airways has rapidly grown its air cargo operations to serve more than 60 global destinations, becoming one of the top international air freight operators in the world. The latest freighter deal builds on the airline’s 777 freighter order book as the airplane has become the backbone of Qatar Airways freighter fleet. It currently operates 23 freighters, including 16 Boeing 777 freighters.
