LATAM to add more B767-300ERBCFs
Last March, LATAM reached an agreement with Boeing to convert four of its B767-300ERs into freighters for delivery in 2021 and 2022. That deal also included options on another four aircraft and on 18 May the airline announced it has decided to firm these options and add another two. These six additions are scheduled to (re)join the fleet in 2022 and 2023.
With this latest announcement, LATAM Cargo is set to grow to a total fleet of 21 B767-300, almost a doubling from its current eleven-strong B767-freighter fleet. As a result of these conversions, LATAM continues to shrink its long-haul fleet. Earlier, the airline already announced the retirement of its eleven A350-900s and the cancellation of four B787-9 orders.
