Telair International has been selected by Boeing to supply the cargo-handling system for the new Boeing 747-8. The supplier will provide systems for the main deck and lower hold of the 747-8 Freighter, as well as the lower hold of the 747-8 Intercontinental.
Telair International, based in Miesbach, Germany, will design and manufacture a cargo-handling system for the 747-8 that is similar to those found on many 747 fleets currently operating worldwide. This continuity will offer Boeing and its 747-8 operators the benefits that result from improved reliability of a mature product. Telair will design and manufacture the cargo-handling system at its facility in Miesbach. The first hardware deliveries are expected in late 2008.Email Post to a Friend
