FARNBOROUGH — In 2028 it will be a violation of international law to sell a new 767 freighter.
In March 2017, the International Civil Aviation Organization Council adopted new standards for CO2 emissions. As part of the environmental agreement, ICAO and its members specified “in-production aircraft which by 2028 do not meet the standard will no longer be able to be produced unless their designs are sufficiently modified.”
With limited chance of a major fuel burn slimming overhaul of the 767, Boeing would need a new product to satisfy what it envisions as rising demand for dedicated medium-size cargo haulers.
The company has been in discussions with FedEx Express over its role as potential launch operator for a dedicated cargo-hauling version of the NMA, according to three people familiar with or briefed on the discussions.
