Atran Airlines takes delivery of 737-400BCF

Atran Airlines has started the new year by taking delivery of a Boeing 737-400BCF, enlarging its fleet to four freighters.

The additional aircraft will support growing cargo volumes, particularly e-commerce shipments, which constitute a major part of Atran’s traffic.

The 737-400BCF will be deployed on existing routes between Russia, the CIS and Europe to transport mail and express goods.

Dmitry Obsharov, general director for Atran Airlines says the 737-400BCF is ideal for mid and short-haul distances, saying: “With an additional freighter in our fleet, we will be able to cater to the needs of our customers in the most effective manner, guaranteeing speed, schedule integrity, and much-needed capacity in the market.”

The freighter can carry up to 23 tonnes of cargo within a flight range of 3,700 kilometres.

It is equipped with a maindeck side cargo door and a loading system enabling it to stow 11 standard aviation pallets and containers in the cargo compartment.
