Aercap to lease Four Big Twins to Fly Meta
Aercap Holdings 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 be delivered in 2024 and 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 set to be delivered to the US cargo airline Kalitta Air in H1/2023. (cj)
