CMA CGM AIR CARGO ordered both planes in the Spring of 2021. The purchase of two Boeing 777 Freighters was the first direct order since the CMA CGM Group announced the launch of its dedicated air cargo transportation division in February 2021.

CMA CGM AIR CARGO also officially disclosed an order for two additional Boeing 777 Freighters. When delivered, the new planes will complete a fleet of at least 12 Boeing and Airbus aircraft by 2026.
