On 16th November, Boeing delivered the first Boeing 747-400 Freighter to enter the fleet of AirBridgeCargo, a subsidiary of Volga-Dnepr Group, under lease from GE Commercial Aviation Services (GECAS).
The new airplane is the sixth 747 freighter in the AirBridge fleet, joining five 747-200/-300 Freighters. It is also the first of two 747-400 Freighters that AirBridgeCargo will lease from GE Commercial Aviation Services, and the carrier will take an additional 747-400F on lease in the second quarter of 2008. The Volga-Dnepr Group has also ordered five of Boeing’s new 747-8 Freighters, the next model in the 747 freighter family.
GECAS has another 747-400F delivery in early 2008; which also will be leased to AirBridgeCargo.
The new airplane will be used on AirBridgeCargo’s routes worldwide. AirBridgeCargo’s new Boeing 747-400 Freighter is powered by General Electric CF6-80C2 engines.
