China Southern to Purchase Six 777 Freighters

Reuters and Bloomberg are reporting that China Southern Airlines has agreed to purchase six Boeing 777 freighters for a total of $1.58 billion.  The purchase is in response to the continued growth in the Chinese export market which is generating increased air-cargo traffic.  The purchase almost doubles China Southern’s current cargo fleet which consists of eight aircraft.  The new aircraft will be delivered from 2013 to 2015.
