Cathay Pacific Airways celebrated the delivery of the airline’s first 747-400ERF (Extended Range Freighter). The airplane is the first of six Boeing 747-400ERFs to be delivered to Cathay Pacific. The airline currently operates 115 airplanes, 18 of which are freighters, including six 747-400BCFs (Boeing Converted Freighters), six 747-400 and six 747-200 Freighters. The airline has remaining orders for two 747-400BCFs to further expand its freighter fleet. Cathay Pacific also has an order for 10 747-8F freighters.
The new aircraft is powered by Pratt & Whitney PW4062A engines and will be deployed on trunk routes to North America to take full advantage of the airplane’s superior payload range capability.Email Post to a Friend
