Qantas to be world’s first A321P2F operator

    Qantas announced (10-Aug-2019) plans to introduce up to three A321P2F aircraft to operate for Australia Post. The first aircraft is due to enter the fleet in Oct-2020 and Qantas stated it will be the first airline to operate an A321 freighter. The A321P2Fs will provide nine tonnes of additional capacity, an increase of nearly 50%, compared to Qantas’ existing Boeing 737 freighters. Qantas and Australia Post signed an expanded seven year domestic and international airfreight agreement valued at more than AUD1 billion (USD677 million) to provide Australia Post customers with access to Qantas Freight freighter aircraft, priority access to cargo capacity on Qantas and Jetstar Airways passenger services and capacity on Qantas’ partner airlines worldwide.
