Cargo Carrier Has Options For Five Additional Aircraft
The delivery of the first of five new Boeing 747-8 Freighters to
AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC), part of Volga-Dnepr Group was made
Thursday. "The introduction of the Boeing 747-8F represents a huge
commitment to our customers since we are investing in state of the
art equipment to further expand our network," said Tatyana
Arslanova, executive president of AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
"ABC is a valued customer of Boeing that has built a very
successful cargo business with the help of 11 747 Freighters and
we're confident ABC will maintain its impressive rate of growth,
supported by the new fleet of Boeing 747-8 Freighters," said Marty
Bentrott, vice president of Sales for Russia, Central Asia and
Middle East, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
The new 747-8 Freighter is 250 feet, 2 inches long, which is 18
feet and 4 inches longer than its predecessor, the 747-400
Freighter. The stretch provides customers with 16 percent more
revenue cargo volume, which translates to four additional main-deck
pallets and three additional lower-hold pallets. The 747-8
Freighters are powered with GE's GEnx-2B engines.
The addition of the 747-8 to ABC's fleet is an important step in
its long-term business strategy. In addition to the five 747-8
Freighters it has on order, AirBridge Cargo has options for an
additional five more airplanes.
