UPS Orders Up To 28 Boeing 747-8 Freighters


Well-known freight carrier UPS has ordered 14 747-8 Freighters from Boeing and has signed an option to purchase up to 14 additional airframes.

“These aircraft are a strategic investment for increased capacity for UPS customers around the globe,” said Brendan Canavan, President, UPS Airlines. “The 747-8 will allow UPS to upsize our network in both new and existing markets.”

Boeing describes the 747-8 Freighter as “the world’s most efficient freighter, providing cargo operators the lowest operating costs and best economics of any large freighter on the market.” The aeroplane has 16% more revenue cargo volume than the earlier 747-400F and reduces the noise footprint around an airport by 30% compared with its predecessor.
