First 777F for FedEx

FedEx Express has taken delivery of its first 777 Freighter.

September 22: FedEx Express took delivery of its first 777 Freighter, also the first to serve with a US-based carrier.

It’s the ninth 777 Freighter to be delivered by Boeing, which calls it a “game changer.” It claims that transit times from points in Asia to the FedEx hub in Memphis, Tennessee, will drop by one to three hours compared with the MD-11 Freighter.

To date 71 777 Freighters have been ordered worldwide.
