UPS Airlines has added another Boeing 767-300 freighter (MSN 37873) to its fleet subject to a sale and leaseback deal with an entity named CC & EI. The US freight specialist declined to comment on "financial specifics".

UPS, which now has 47 767-300Fs in its fleet, has another 11 of the same variant due to be delivered over the next three years, according to Ascend data. This latest delivery arrived at the Atlanta-headquartered company earlier this week.

A spokesperson at UPS says the 767s are "versatile workhorses and great additions to the world's largest logistics network", adding "We use them to fly small package and air freight volume on international and intra-theatre routes in the Europe, Asia and the Americas."

UPS acquired Dutch-based logistics firm TNT Express earlier this year, but FlightGlobal reported last month that the rights of TNT Airways would be sold to a third party owing to restrictions on foreign investment in European Union carriers.
