The United Parcel Service (UPS) says it has ordered nineteen B767-300Fs from Boeing (BOE, Washington National) for placement with its UPS Airlines (5X, Louisville International) subsidiary and likely to help replace its outgoing McDonnell Douglas fleet.

"The Boeing 767 is the most versatile aircraft we operate," President (US Operations) Nando Cesarone said. "Our plan to purchase 19 aircraft and take delivery between 2023 and 2025 aligns with the strategy and capital expenditure forecast shared during our June 2021 Investor and Analyst Day. It also supports our sustainability efforts by making our fleet more efficient and improving reliability."

Chief Executive Officer Carol Tomé said during the June presentation that over the next three years, UPS would invest in acquiring "about" 27 aircraft some of which will be used for incremental growth while others will replace its ageing trijets.

"We've got about forty MD-11s. Their average age - they're the oldest aircraft we have in our fleet - is up to 27 years. So we're going to start to replace those aircraft at the end of this three-year period," she said.

The ch-aviation fleets advanced module shows UPS in fact operates a fleet of forty-two MD-11Fs alongside seventy-one B767-300Fs, four B767-300(ERBDSF)s, and four B767-300(ERBCF)s. It also makes use of seventy-five B757-200(PF)s, twenty-six B747-8Fs (with two more due by year-end), eleven B747-400FSCDs, two B747-400(BCF)s, and fifty-two A300-600Fs.
