New freighter for Etihad Cargo
Etihad Cargo has taken delivery of a new Boeing 777 freighter, the 11th in its fleet.
The company announced it would take delivery of the two additional aircraft at the Dubai Air Show last year, forming part of the US $67 billion fleet order that was made in 2013 for 199 aircraft.
The two additional freighter aircraft are valued at $637 million at list prices and the second freighter is expected to arrive in Abu Dhabi in March.
Both new aircraft will come equipped with nine seats allowing Etihad Cargo to carry additional grooms as part of its Sky Stables programme, which supports high value equine movement.
