UPS takes three 767-freighter conversions

Boeing is to convert three 767-passenger aircraft to freighters for UPS.

“The purchase and conversion of these 767s is a perfect example of how UPS is making smart investments to fuel profitable growth,” said UPS Airlines president Brendan Canavan.

“This extension of our relationship with Boeing will help expand the safe, reliable and on-time services we provide for our customers all over the world.”

UPS operates 184 Boeing aircraft. In October, 2016 UPS announced the purchase of 14 747-8 Freighters, with options to purchase 14 additional aircraft.

Boeing’s current market outlook forecasts a need for 400 wide-body conversions over the next two decades, with strong demand for 767 freighter conversions due to a rise in e-commerce and the express market.
