The Boeing 767 is made to fill the size niche between their smaller and larger models. It can accommodate up to eight seats across its wide interior.
The Boeing 767 differs as a freighter from other Boeing 767 models in that it doesn’t have the doors and windows of the passenger aircraft. Its fuselage is made of advanced lightweight materials which deliver greater fuel economy while providing structural strength. Its interior is modified with a fiberglass liner to accommodate cargo, with a bulkhead between the cargo compartment and the cockpit that controls unintended cargo shifting. The aircraft shares the same low noise levels of the passenger models.
It is claimed that the Boeing 767 is so reliable that it is able to spend a maximum of time airborne, keeping non-flying losses low. We are told that there are more Boeing 767 aircraft flying between the United States and Europe than any other airliner.
The engines of the aircraft are said to be more efficient than those of other airliners in the same class. Boeing says that that they burn about five percent less fuel and have the least amount of harmful substances released into the air.
There are some 2,000 Boeing 767 aircraft of all types deployed by some 92 airlines throughout the world.
