Fifth 747-400F for AirBridgeCargo

April 8 - AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) has added a fifth Boeing 747-400 freighter to its fleet to compensate for delivery delays of the Boeing 747-8 freighter.

The additional B747-400 freighter joined the AirBridgeCargo fleet at the beginning of April.

This latest investment increases the airline's total aircraft fleet to eight freighters, which includes two Boeing 747-200 aircraft and one B747-300, in addition the B747-400 versions.

ABC says the fifth 747-400F will enable it to meet continued demand on key routes. The first of ABC's five new Boeing 747-8F aircraft was scheduled for delivery this year, but Boeing now estimates that the first next generation freighter will only be delivered in February 2011.

According to ABC executive president Tatyana Arslanova, some markets in the world, such as Shanghai, require increased aircraft capacity. With no Boeing 747-8 being delivered this year, the additional Boeing 747-400 will enable ABC to increase the number of frequencies from Shanghai to twelve a week.
