The Airbus A350F, the freighter version of the A350, has won a new customer: Silkway West Airlines, which is ordering two copies from the company. Airbus is now claiming 31 buy and sell pledges.
A major Boeing customer moves to Airbus
A big Boeing customer just moved to Airbus. This is the airline, Silk Way Airlines, which has ordered two Airbus A350F aircraft. The carrier was established in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, in 2012, and is a historic customer of Boeing since it began activities with the Boeing 747-400F, and later joined the 747-8F. Silk Way West Airlines now has five of each model in the fleet. Five Boeing 777 freighters have been added with deliveries ranging from 2023 to 2027.
set of abilities
The 777F and A350F enable Silk Way West Airlines not only to expand its network but also to adapt to changes in demand with capacities of 102, 109 (those of the A350F/note), 125 and 137 tons. The airline will be able to acquire the A350F from 2025.
Airbus A350F: 31 sales and commitments
This allows Airbus to infiltrate new information. The A350F now has 31 sales and purchase commitments from six customers. At the end of May 2022, the freighter had 22 sales companies and four customers (Air France, Air Lease Corp., CMA CGM, Singapore Airlines). With Silk Way West Airlines, this has now generated sales to five customers and 24 businesses.
Unknown customer for 7 A350Fs
So there is still one unknown customer for 7 A350F aircraft. Perhaps the upcoming Farnborough Auto Show would be an occasion to learn this customer’s name while turning the purchase commitment into a fixed contract.
