Boeing Delivers 747-400 Freighter to Cargolux



The Boeing Company recently delivered to Cargolux Airlines International S.A. its 16th and last 747-400 Freighter with a ceremony at Paine Field in Everett, Wash.

Everett, Wash. – This year celebrates the 30th anniversary of Cargolux taking delivery of its first Boeing 747 Freighter. The airplane, dubbed „City of Contern,“ was delivered before a contingent of official representatives from the commune of Contern, Luxembourg, as well as Luxembourg-based media.

Cargolux is the launch customer for the 747-8, and will take delivery of the first of its 13 Boeing 747-8 Freighters in 2009.

Cargolux’s new 747-8 Freighters will offer significant capacity benefits over their 747-400F fleet, with a maximum structural payload capacity of 140 metric tonnes (154 tons) and 16 percent more revenue cargo volume, with slightly greater range and 16 percent lower tonne-kilometer costs.
