“The enhanced air freighter network complements AUD900 million (USD611 million) in investment across our network through automation and infrastructure, and provides the speed, flexibility and reliability customers expect."
Qantas Freight wet-leases in its freight capacity which, the ch-aviation fleets advanced module shows, currently consists of two B747-400(FSCD)s wet-leased from Atlas Air, four B737-300(F)s, one B737-400(F), and one B767-300(F) all wet-leased from Express Freighters Australia, four BAe 146-300(QT)s wet-leased from JetEx (JTE, Adelaide), and one B757-200(PCF) wet-leased from Pacific Air Express (Australia) (PE, Brisbane Int'l).
