Qantas Freight welcomes first Boeing 747-8F freighter

Qantas Freight has welcomed a new addition to its fleet with the first of two Boeing 747-8F freighter aircraft touching down in Sydney on August 27. The next-generation freighters will be operated by Atlas Air, on behalf of Qantas. Each aircraft offers 20% more freight capacity and space for seven extra cargo pallets compared to the 747-400F.

The two freighters will operate between Australia, China and the USA, with additional routes currently being explored. The second 747-8F aircraft will enter service later this week.

While the aircraft will be painted in Atlas Air livery, the Qantas Freight logo will be displayed on either side of the nose and underneath the freighters’ nose cargo door.
