FedEx to take United Boeing 757s

by Matt Falcus

Fedex 757FedEx Express has agreed to purchase 15 United Airlines Boeing 757s which it will convert into freighters.

It has also taken options on a further 16 examples, with deliveries expected to take place between 2013 and 2015.

FedEx has been adding a number of 757s to its fleet since 2008 as it gradually replaces its ageing Boeing 727-200 freighters. Its existing 757s have come secondhand from a variety of sources, including US Airways, Monarch Airlines, and Thomson Airways.

United will continue to operate a sizeable fleet of Boeing 757s despite this deal.
