EuroSky Airways plans large fleet expansion
« on: September 14, 2020, 10:01:00 AM »
EuroSky Airways has announced a large-scale fleet expansion after a large increase in long-haul cargo demand. EuroSky currently has 75 aircraft in operation consisting of 51 McDonnel Douglas DC-10-30Fs, 14 Boeing 727-200AFs and 11 Boeing 757-200PFs.

They plan to phase out the Boeing 727-200AFs by Q1 of 1991 as the increase in cargo demand for the long haul, narrow-body cargo flights has now made the Boeing 727-200AF obsolete and unable to meet the current requirements as well as now being too small for most routes. Their new Boeing 757s are to replace these ageing birds.

The airline is a specialised Long-haul cargo airline boasting 45% profit margins as of such. They do however operate a small handful of short-haul routes

Boeing 757-200PF
EuroSky Airways has 11 Boeing 757-200PFs in operation and a further 20 on order with options for another 14 aircraft. These are to replace their fleet of 23  total Boeing 727-200AFs of which 8 have been put up for sale and 1 for storage as of writing.

These 757s will be delivered between 1989 and 1992

McDonnel Douglas MD-11F
EuroSky Airways has 21 MD-11Fs on order with options for a further 14 aircraft. These are to replace most of the DC-10-30Fs as well as expand routes into new markets. The MD-11F has a larger capacity than the DC-10 thanks to the longer fuselage which now is a much-needed capacity boost on high-demand routes.

These new MD-11Fs will be delivered from 1991!

Boeing 747-400F
EuroSky Airways also has some very exciting news as they have placed orders for 14 Boeing 747-400Fs! These have been ordered for EuroSky's most popular routes to countries such as Japan and the US where the cargo demand has gone up 50%! This has made the DC-10 almost redundant on these routes.

These new Boeing 747-400Fs will be delivered from 1994!
