AirBridgeCargo Airlines receives second Boeing 747-8F

April 2 - Jeff Klemann, vice president Everett Field Ops & Delivery/AOG/747/767/777/787 Programs for Boeing is seen with Tatyana Arslanova, executive president of AirBridgeCargo Airlines on the steps of the Russian cargo airline's second Boeing 747-8 Frei

The new aircraft will be used on ABC's existing route network linking Europe, Asia and the USA with AirBridgeCargo's hubs in Moscow. ABC took delivery of its first B747-8F in January 2012, part of its order for five of the new generation cargo aircraft. The airline also has options for five more.

"The introduction of another new freighter will benefit both our company and our customers, who will appreciate the additional features of the airplane. We have been successfully operating our first B747-8F for three months and the deployment of the second plane will see the continued realisation of ABC's fleet modernisation and optimisation strategy," stated Arslanova.
