Wet-lease operator Southern Air Holdings has taken delivery of its first B777 freighter, which will provide capacity under a block-space agreement for Thai Cargo. The second, also for use by Thai, will be delivered on 2 March.

CEO Daniel McHugh said: “The addition of these two B777s is a defining moment in the history of Southern Air that begins the next phase of the company’s growth. The combination of the B777s and our 16 B747s makes Southern Air the first ACMI operator to feature a full fleet of current and next generation freighter aircraft.” The company has two further B777s on order and an option for two others.
