China Southern converts 777-300ER orders to 777-200LR freighters

 China Southern Airlines has converted an order for two Boeing 777-300ERs to 777-200LR Freighters.

The carrier disclosed the order change in a stock exchange statement, and adds that the two freighter aircraft will be delivered in 2020.

The two 777-300ERs are from an October 2017 order for eight that were scheduled for delivery between 2019 and 2020. It still plans to take delivery of the remaining six 777-300ERs from that order, as well as 30 737-8s that were part of that agreement.

General Electric GE90 engines power both the -300ER and -200LRF.

Cirium’s Fleets Analyzer shows that the carrier has 10 777-300ERs in its fleet and 12 777-200LRFs.
