Boeing and Singapore Technologies Aerospace Ltd (ST Aero) have delivered the first MD11 converted freighter to United Parcel Service’s (UPS) Louisville base.
The aircraft is the first of 13 MD11s that Boeing will acquire and convert from a passenger aircraft to a freighter for UPS.
ST Aero’s subsidiary, SASCO, has been selected by Boeing to perform the conversion work.
“In the coming years, the MD11 will be the primary aircraft flying our international trunk routes, and it will be the centerpiece in our drive to enable global commerce,” said Bob Lekites, vice president of UPS Airlines.
The agreement between Boeing and UPS also includes options for 22 additional MD11s.
