Fourth Boeing 747-8 Freighter for Cargolux

  25.05.2012    

Cargolux took delivery of another Boeing 747-8 Freighter at the aircraft manufacturer’s delivery center in Everett. After a short ferry flight to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the fourth aircraft out of a total order of 13 entered into revenue service on the same day with the flight continuing to Los Angeles prior to joining the Cargolux fleet in Luxembourg.
‘LX-VCE, which is the first aircraft that was not part of the test flight program, is also the first 747-8F delivered from Boeing with increased operational weights. The maximum takeoff weight has gone up by 6 tonnes to 442 tonnes. As our 747-8F fleet is growing steadily, we are able to enjoy the increased economics of the new freighter in our operations,’ said Frank Reimen, Cargolux President & CEO.
With the acceptance of LX-VCE, City of Echternach, Cargolux continues its fleet rollover program that was initiated with its original order for the 747-8 freighter in 2005. The new aircraft replaces a 747-400F that is due to leave the fleet in the summer. For 2012, Cargolux expects additional deliveries, while the 747-400F fleet will successively be reduced.
