Cargolux inaugurates 747-8F to Brazil

June 17 - Cargolux Airlines International introduced its first B747-8 freighter service into Brazil on June 16, 2013.

Flight CV7687 from Luxembourg to Sao Paulo Viracopos International airport was the first-ever commercial operation of a B747-8F into the country.
 
The Brazilian authorities only recently certified Boeing's flagship freighter to fly in its airspace. Until now, Cargolux has only been able to deploy its smaller, less fuel-efficient B747-400 freighters into Brazilian gateways.
 
"The 747-8F will further support airfreight exports from Brazil, permitting export commodities like automotive parts, pharmaceutical products and fruits to reach their markets throughout the world in a more fuel efficient and, therefore, sustainable way," said Pier Curci, Cargolux vice president the Americas.
