Qantas freighter colours on show

ON 12 February the world got a glimpse of the first aircraft bearing Qantas Freight livery.

The 767-300 VH-EFR, which touched down in Sydney, is operated for Qantas Freight by Qantas subsidiary Express Freighters Australia. It will be used for trans-Tasman services, replacing a wetleased ATI 767-200F.

To date most Qantas’ freight capacity has been provided by belly space on airliners, Australian Air Express-operated aircraft and three leased Atlas Air 747-400Fs.

Plans to increase Qantas’ Tasman freighter capacity by 40 per cent were first revealed in December.

The new aircraft has a maximum payload of 59 tonnes.
