The LATAM Group has announced the expansion of its freighter fleet.
It now plans to add ten Boeing 767-300 Boeing converted freighters over the next three years, bringing the fleet size to up to 21 freighters by 2023. The first aircraft will be expected to begin operations in December 2021.
The Group's freighter fleet growth plan initially included four firm conversion orders with Boeing and another four conversion options. Two months after the initial announcement, LATAM has exercised the four options, eight aircraft, and the conversion of two additional Boeing 767-300ERs. This means that the freighter fleet will comprise of up to 21 aircraft by the end of 2023.
Upon completion of the plan the Group will have almost doubled its freighter capacity as well as reduced the average fleet age from 17 to 14 years.
