The Challenge Group announced the addition of B767-300BDSF aircraft to its fleet, increasing its total capacity and operational flexibility.
The launch of the B767 aircraft is part of Challenge Group's fleet diversification programme, which is intended to respond to changing market demands and meet the needs of individual customers, says an official release. "It is critical to remember that the B767 is an addition to the current fleet, not a replacement for the B747-400. The B777F will be presented as an addition in the coming years, underscoring the company's dedication to growth and expansion."
"We are excited to welcome the B767-300BDSF to our fleet, a testament to our dedication to providing exceptional service and solutions to our customers," said Yossi Shoukroun, Chief Executive Officer, Challenge Group. "This aircraft's enhanced efficiency and sustainability align perfectly with our mission to tackle the challenges posed by certain airport restrictions worldwide, including the 4-engine ban and noise level regulations that have been on the rise."
Challenge Group has prepared for this fleet diversification project, allowing sufficient time for specific training, operational adjustments, and targeted roadshows in key markets, like the recent one conducted in India, the release added. "The continuation of the conversion programme is set to begin in September with two aircraft undergoing simultaneous conversion, and the full fleet of four B767 aircraft expected to be fully operational by Q12024."
Or Zak, Chief Commercial Officer, Challenge Group adds: "The B767's introduction will revolutionise our ability to serve our customers better. With additional capacity and enhanced flexibility, we can offer improved frequency to our current destinations and venture into new markets, enriching our global presence significantly."
