Demonstrating the Boeing 767’s universal and ongoing value, UPS has ordered another eight.  This order will take UPS’ 767 fleet to over 100 aircraft once delivered.

The additional 767s will help us continue to deliver what matters to UPS customers around the world. This is a very versatile aircraft that we operate across every region of the globe,” said UPS Executive Vice President and President U.S. Nando Cesarone. “With these aircraft, our fleet will continue to be among the most modern in our industry, meeting our customers’ needs while improving our efficiency, sustainability and reliability.”

UPS will begin taking delivery of these new airplanes in 2025, with an additional 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) entering service in late 2023. This purchase builds on UPS’s order for 19 767 Freighters in December 2021.

These 767 freighters are based on the 767-300ER.  The 767-300ER completed its first flight on December 9, 1986, and in March 1987 it won its first firm order from American Airlines. The 767-300ER entered service with American Airlines on March 3, 1988.  Thirty-seven years after entry into service the 767-300ER is still winning orders.  That is some track record.
