[SINGAPORE] Fedex Express, a subsidiary of the world's largest cargo firm FedEx Corp, has ordered 50 additional Boeing Co 767-300 freighters, the company said in a statement.
The deal, which includes options for another 50 767Fs, is worth US$9.97 billion at list prices. Customers typically get an undisclosed discount off the list prices.
FedEx said the aircraft will be delivered over the fiscal years 2018-2023. The latest deal brings FedEx's firm orders for 767Fs to 106.
The contract is also the single-largest order for 767s in the history of the programme, allowing Boeing to extend the aircraft's production line well into the next decade.
