Taipei, Taiwan - Taiwanese national carrier China Airlines has converted its options for three Boeing 777F into a firm order.
The airline signed an order commitment with Boeing for three Boeing 777 Freighter aircraft, including three options in May. The company finalized the memorandum of understanding intended for three aircraft during the Paris Air Show.
The conversion of the three options into firm orders came after two months from the Paris Air Show. The total value of the deal is estimated at around $1.06 million at list prices.
The 777Fs of the Taiwanese operator are intended to replace the aging 747-400Fs of the operator. China Airlines currently has 18 Boeing 747F in operation.
Three of them were already withdrawn from the service and stored for disassembly.
China Airlines is one of the two major Airlines in the country with Eva Air. It operates over 1400 flights weekly, including 91 cargo flights. The airline flies to 102 cities across Asia, Europe, North America, and Oceania.
