Airbus Updates No.3921

GlobalX welcomes 1st freighter

On 24 January 2022, GlobalX welcomed its first freighter aircraft. Arriving at its base at Miami (FL) from Kansas City (MO) on this date was newly converted Airbus A321-231P2F N410GX (1199). The Airbus was previously flying passengers for Ural Airlines.

The aircraft is the first of fifteen converted A321P2Fs the airline has committed to. GlobalX is planning to operate its own cargo flights but will also provide Aircraft, Maintenance, Crew and Insurance (ACMI)-operations for third parties. Last May, it signed a contract with Avianca in which GlobalX is to operate five A321P2Fs for the carrier from Colombia.

Next to the freighters, GlobalX is currently operating a fleet of one A319, six A320s and two A321s. The company is also looking into leasing ten Boeing B717-200s. Originally, the original plan was to welcome the first B717 in October 2022 but that never happened. What the status of these plans are is unknown.
