Cargolux takes fourth Boeing 747-8 freighter

May 25 - Cargolux has taken delivery of another Boeing 747-8 Freighter, and the fourth aircraft out of a total order of 13 has entered into service.

" LX-VCE, which is the first aircraft that was not part of the test flight programme, is also the first 747-8F delivered from Boeing with increased operational weights. The maximum takeoff weight has gone up by six 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 ReimenCargolux president & CEO.

Cargolux says that with the acceptance of LX-VCE, City of Echternach, into service, it continues its fleet rollover programme 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.
