More Boeing orders for Qatar Airways

first_imgThe airline also received the first of the 747-8 freighters already on order at a delivery ceremony attended by Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways group chief executive, and Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and ceo Kevin McAllister. “The addition of our very first 747-8 Freighter is a significant moment for our cargo division, and a welcome addition to our 20-strong cargo fleet of wide-body aircraft,” said Al Baker. “Qatar Airways continues to invest in fleet expansion, with a second 747-8F due to be delivered in November.” Boeing claims its 747-8 freighter gives cargo operators the lowest operating costs and best economics of any large freighter aircraft while providing enhanced environmental performance. It is optimised to provide greater revenue cargo-carrying capability than the 747-400, offering 16 percent more cargo volume while keeping its unique nose door.  www.boeing.com www.qrcargo.comlast_img
