747-8F delivery number 9 for Cargolux


Cargolux Airlines International S.A. took delivery of LX-VCI, ‘City of Troisvierges’ on 26 September from Boeing in Seattle. The airline’s ninth 747-8 Freighter, which brings the combined 747 fleet to 19 units, was routed via Los Angeles and landed in Luxembourg on the morning of 27 September where it was greeted by journalists waiting to catch a glimpse of Cargolux’s latest workhorse. The new aircraft carried a full load of 135 tonnes of freight on its first flight to Luxembourg.
With a growing fleet of advanced, next-generation freighters, Cargolux is steadily decreasing its environmental footprint while benefiting from the aircraft’s lower operating costs and improved economics. Thanks to its new GEnx engines, enhanced aerodynamics and lighter materials, the Boeing 747-8 Freighter provides double-digit improvements in fuel consumption and carbon emissions – well below ICAO limits. The 747-8F is not just cleaner, but also significantly quieter than its predecessor.
