CargoLogicAir Takes Delivery of its First Boeing 747-8 Freighter

CargoLogicAir recently took delivery of its first Boeing 747-8 Freighter at the Farnborough International Airshow 2016. CargoLogicAir is a newly formed British cargo airline, and part of their growth strategy is based on operating a fleet of five Boeing 747 freighters within their first five years of operations.

“Taking delivery of our first Boeing 747-8 Freighter is another important milestone for CargoLogicAir and a clear sign of the high quality of service we are committed to providing our customers in the UK and worldwide. The 747-8F is a remarkable aircraft capable of carrying virtually any cargo from temperature-sensitive fresh produce and pharmaceuticals to long aerospace and oil&gas cargoes through its nose door. It is a highly efficient aircraft and offers us a 16% increase in payload over our 747-400, increasing our capacity on a single flight to 137 tonnes,” Dmitry Grishin said.
