The first Boeing 747-8 Freighter painted in customer livery left the Boeing paint hangar on June 7. The airplane sports an updated livery for launch customer Cargolux. The Luxembourg-based cargo operator has a total of 13 Boeing 747-8 Freighters on order.
“The design stands for continuity and commitment while confirming the fundamental principles that made Cargolux successful. The red, white and blue stripes symbolize the company’s roots in Luxembourg, its hub and home base,” said Ulrich Ogiermann, chief executive officer of Cargolux. The new livery features a distinctive new red tail and an additional logo on the belly further promotes the brand.
Boeing will deliver the first 747-8 Freighter to launch customer Cargolux in the fourth quarter of this year.
