21 Air to add B767-300ERF

21 Air B767

US-based freighter operator 21 Air has successfully fulfilled Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) technical requirements to include Boeing 767-300 Extended Range freighters in the airline’s fleet.

The first aircraft added to the fleet listing is a B767-300ERF identified with MSN 34627 and tail number N420LA. At present the airline’s fleet consists of two B767-200Fs.

21 Air will operate this aircraft, as an interchange operator, in accordance with its long-term agreement with Mas Air, a certificated Mexican All Cargo air carrier, the primary operator. 

The airline said it is currently in the process of incorporating additional B767-300ERF’s to its fleet, with plans to begin aircraft operations in December.

Last week, the operator announced that it has applied for a long-term wet lease with an unnamed Canadian all-cargo carrier for flights between the US-Canada and beyond.
