Airbus reveals A350 freighter debut order

Date Added: 18 November 2021

As the UK’s leading independent air freight forwarding company, Davies Turner is interested that the jet freighter market has suddenly become more competitive with a significant debut order for the newly-launched A350 wide-body freighter.

The deal for seven A350 freighters for rental giant Air Lease pushed the European planemaker into competition with rival Boeing. The agreement comes as air cargo is experiencing a pandemic boom with record volumes of medical personal protection equipment and distressed sea cargo forced into airfreight by congested shipping channels.

However, industry observers have noted that with the aircrafts’ likely arrival in 2025, potentially post-pandemic, it is likely to be more about new regulations that will result in a wave of replacements as existing wide-body freighters are made obsolete in the next few years.
