ANA Cargo adds 10th Boeing 767 Freighter.

All Nippon Airways (NH/ANA) expanded its dedicated freighter fleet to 10 on May 13th, when Boeing 767-316F/ER JA605F arrived at Tokyo/Narita (NRT/RJAA).

It is ANA's first secondhand freighter, and was acquired from Florida West International Airways (RF/FWL), which first took delivery of this aircraft on November 28th, 2001 as N316LA. Florida West is 25% owned by LAN Airlines (LA/LAN) and is part of the LATAM Airlines Group. Ironically, their remaining sole example, 767-346F/ER N422LA, formerly served with Japan Airlines' (JL/JAL) as JA633J.

Joining ANA's cargo fleet of two 767-300ERFs as well as seven passenger-to-freighter-converted 767-300BCFs, JA605F will also be their first winglet-equipped 767 freighter. It entered service the following day on NH8563, service from Narita to Nagoya/Chubu Centrair (NGO/RJGG). Most of ANA Cargo's flights are operated by lower-cost subsidiary Air Japan (NQ/AJX).
