First Of Five 747-8 Freighters Delivered To AirBridgeCargo Airlines

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.
