China Southern orders two 747-400 freighters-Flight
LONDON, April 30 (Reuters)

China Southern Airlines <1055.HK> has ordered two new Boeing 747-400 freighters from Boeing Co , Flight International said in its latest issue.

The magazine said the freighters, the first to be ordered by a Chinese airline, are due for delivery in June and September 2002.

It added that government approval for the purchase has been given but the engine choice still has to be finalised.

China Southern already operates a thrice-weekly service between Shenzen, Shanghai and Chicago using a 747-400 freighter wet-leased from Atlas Air Inc .

Wet-leasing involves providing the aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance.

The airline said on April 12 that during its first year of operation, the freighter was achieving nearly 90 tonnes of cargo uplift on each flight out of China.

Flight added that China Southern is also looking at cargo routes to Asia and Europe.

So are those two B744s included in the 5 new B744s orders Boeing announced one or two weeks ago but refused to say who ordered those planes? I posted an article saying China Southern is likely to be the one, YO HOO! : P I guess I was right!  Smile

But who are the rests?

No, they are not part of the five plane order by ILFC. they are a diffrent order. Good day for the 747F thought.

These will be the best looking 744's in the sky.

Its strange, An airline like CZ order two 744F's and nobody says anything. AA order a couple more 777's to add to the 50 they already have and its big news ??

Here is a sneak preview of the 747F in China Southern colours. In fact, this "photo" is actually postcard which China Southern put out for their 10th anniversary this year.
