AerCap has signed lease agreements for four Boeing 777-300ERSF aircraft with Hong Kong-based global air cargo charter company Fly Meta. The aircraft are scheduled to deliver in 2024 through 2025.
The Boeing 777-300ERSF, also known as ‘The Big Twin’, is the first passenger-to-freighter aircraft conversion programme of the Boeing 777-300ER and will be the largest twin-engine freighter when it enters service this year.
AerCap Cargo and Israel Aerospace Industries Group (IAI) launched the 777-300ERSF conversion programme in 2019, known as ‘The Big Twin’. Today, AerCap Cargo has a firm order book of 20 Boeing 777-300ERSF aircraft and a further ten options. The first aircraft is expected to deliver in the first half of 2023 to U.S. cargo airline, Kalitta Air.
