Third Boeing 747-8 Freighter for Cargolux

March 23 - Cargolux has accepted its third Boeing 747-8 Freighter today and will fly the aircraft from Seattle to Luxembourg, where it joins a fleet currently consisting of Boeing 747 aircraft including nine 747-400F, three 747-400BCF and two 747-8F.

Cargolux says its fleet replacement process will continue in 2012. As the carrier builds up its 747-8 freighter fleet, the three leased 747-400BCF, that are currently operated to bridge the capacity gap caused by delivery delays, are planned to be phased out by year end.

With a growing fleet of advanced, next-generation freighters, Cargolux says it is steadily decreasing its environmental footprint while benefiting from the aircraft's lower operating costs and improved economics. Thanks to its new GEnxengines, improved aerodynamics and lighter materials, the Boeing 747-8 freighter provides double-digit improvements in fuel consumption and carbon emissions - well below ICAO limits, claims Cargolux.

The 747-8F is not just cleaner, but also significantly quieter than its predecessor.
