Azul Cargo Express to replace its fleet
According to both CargoFacts and CH-Aviation, Azul Cargo, the cargo subsidiary of Azul Linhas Aéreas is planning to replace its current fleet of two B737-400SFs and intends to do so with two (leased) A321P2Fs.
The plan is to take delivery of the duo next year and phase-out the B737s when their leases expire in early 2023. Azul has decided on the A321P2F as the type can carry seven tonnes more cargo than the B737-400SFs and will also bring more commonality with the large Airbus-fleet at Azul mainline.
To cope with the increase demand for cargo capacity, Azul has also converted one ERJ195 into a "phreighter". This aircraft is also wearing the Azul Cargo Express-livery.
