Etihad Cargo has taken delivery of a new Boeing 777 freighter, the 11th cargo freighter in the airline’s fleet.
The Boeing 777 will enter commercial service on March 1, with a second freighter expected to be delivered in Abu Dhabi later the same month.
Etihad Cargo announced at the Dubai Air Show last year that it would take delivery of the two additional aircraft. They form part of the US $67 billion fleet order that was made in 2013 for 199 aircraft.
The two Boeing 777 aircraft are valued at $637 million at list prices.
"The additional freighter gives us the opportunity to expand our specialist cargo services and grow our market share," said Kevin Knight, chief strategy and planning officer for Etihad Airways.
