Stansted welcomes new 777F

LONDON Stansted Airport has unveiled a first-of-its-kind 777 scheduled cargo aircraft.

FedEx Express revealed its new Boeing 777F aircraft at the Stansted facility as part of sustainability efforts in reducing its global footprint. This latest addition to the fleet will be travelling on the Stansted-Memphis (US) route.

“We have [undertaken] a decade-long effort to reduce energy and fuel usage, increase energy efficiency and put to use technologies that will change the future of our industry,” David Binks, senior vice-president of operations at FedEx Express Europe, said. “The environmental efficiencies of this new aircraft, coupled with its attractive payload range and economics, makes the B777F the best choice for FedEx Express and its customers.”

The 777F has lower noise and emission levels than the MD-11 it has replaced in the FedEx fleet.
