Amazon dominated the narrowbody freighter aircraft transactions (FATs) recorded by Cargo Facts for the month of June, having taken redelivery of four 737-800BCFs on lease from GECAS and placed them with Sun Country Airlines to be CMI-operated. By number of freighters, this was more than any other carrier or operator had received.
Other highlights include a new 747-400F operator in the form of Bermuda-based Longtail Aviation, which has now begun flying unit 27503 (ex-Cargolux), and the induction by GECAS of the first 777-300ER (32789, ex-Emirates) for conversion into freighter configuration by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI).
In total, we logged ten narrowbody and twelve widebody freighter transactions in June.
