SYDNEY — Qantas Airways Ltd said on Monday it would add six Airbus SE A321 converted freighters to its domestic fleet to replace five aging Boeing Co 737s and expand capacity in light of a structural shift to online shopping.
The A321 freighters will be sourced from the open market and converted from carrying passengers to cargo subject to commercial negotiations, the airline said, adding the planes were expected to arrive between early 2024 and mid-2026. (Reporting by Jamie Freed; Editing by Himani Sarkar)
