Kuehne+Nagel (K+N) has chartered two Boeing 747-8 freighters from Atlas Air on a long-term basis.


These two aircraft will be the last of their type to be manufactured. K+N will charter the entire and exclusive capacity of the B747-8Fs and will operate flights globally from the third and fourth quarters of 2022.

The aircraft will be deployed on volatile trade lanes, such as transpacific routes, K+N said.
