Challenge Group has taken delivery to the latest addition to its fleet – the B767-300BDSF aircraft.

The introduction of the B767 aircraft is part of Challenge Group’s fleet diversification project, designed to adapt to evolving market demands and cater to specific customer requirements.

The B767 is an addition to the existing fleet and the company confirmed it is not replacing the B747-400 fleet. In the years to come, the B777F will also be introduced as an addition to its fleet.

Enhanced efficiency and sustainability

“We are excited to welcome the B767-300BDSF to our fleet, a testament to our dedication to providing exceptional service and solutions to our customers,” said Yossi Shoukroun, chief executive officer of Challenge Group. “This aircraft’s enhanced efficiency and sustainability align perfectly with our mission to tackle the challenges posed by certain airport restrictions worldwide, including the 4-engine ban and noise level regulations that have been on the rise.”

He added: “The B767’s arrival will empower Challenge Group to be more competitive and versatile in meeting specific customer needs, allowing for greater flexibility when less capacity is required. This increased adaptability will also pave the way for exploring new markets, including short and medium-haul routes within the EU, the India sub-continent, and the Middle East. The aircraft’s volumetric ratio makes it an ideal choice for transporting commodities, making it highly suitable for e-commerce and pharma industries, where volumetric capacity is critical.”

Or Zak, chief commercial officer of Challenge Group, added: “The B767’s introduction will revolutionise our ability to serve our customers better. With additional capacity and enhanced flexibility, we can offer improved frequency to our current destinations and venture into new markets, enriching our global presence significantly.”
