Cargolux receives its 14th upgraded 747-8F ahead of schedule


Luxembourg's Cargolux Airlines has taken delivery of the LX-VCN, Spirit of Schengen, bringing its fleet to twenty-six 747 freighters, reported American Shipper.
The new arrival was scheduled for delivery in 2017 and will be the fourteenth 747-8F, which was scheduled to arrive next year.
The 747-8 freighters are more fuel efficient and less noisy than their predecessors, allowing Cargolux to extract 16 per cent more revenue cargo volume than on the 747-400 freighter, according to the airline.
In addition, the 747-8F consumes less fuel and has lower carbon dioxide emissions, representing a potential reduction of up to 400,000 tonnes of CO2 per year for Cargolux.
"The 747-8 Freighter has proved to be a tremendous addition to Cargolux's fleet, providing increased capacity, more range and outstanding economics," said Boeing vice president Monty Oliver.
Said Cargolux CEO Richard Forson: "Cargolux operates in a highly competitive market. In such an environment, an aircraft that combines economic efficiency with high earning potential gives a clear advantage."
