Etihad Cargo Unveils Latest B747-8 Freighter

The freighter is being deployed on a new round-the-world routing in conjunction with Atlas Air.



Etihad Cargo has taken delivery of three new Boeing and Airbus wide-body freighters, bringing the division’s fleet to nine aircraft.

The latest arrival, a Boeing 747-8F, was unveiled to customers and partners at Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies’ (ADAT) Hangar 6 on Sunday night.

In conjunction with Atlas Air, the freighter is being deployed on a new round-the-world routing taking in Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong, Chicago, Miami, Viracopos, Quito and Amsterdam.

Two other freighters recently joining the fleet include one Boeing 777F and one Airbus A330F.

Last month Etihad Cargo signed a multi-year Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance agreement with Atlas Air to provide and operate the Boeing 747-8 Freighter with its 138-tonne cargo capacity for the global schedule.
