First B747 freighter for Kuehne + Nagel
Kuehne + Nagel is expanding its air freight network by chartering the entire capacity of the very last two B747-8F aircraft delivered by Boeing.
The logistics services provider has now put into operation its first B747-8F as part of the long-term charter agreement with Atlas Air. During the official ceremony at the Boeing Everett Delivery Center, the aircraft under the name "Inspire." was handed over to KN.
Yngve Ruud, member of the KN management board, responsible for air logistics: "Together with the very last 747-8F that we named “Empower.”, the aircraft will support our customers with reliable and flexible solutions globally, continuing the legacy of the most incredible aviation programs in history."
In addition to transpacific routings, the new service will be linked with KN's Intra-Asia network improving connectivity within the growing region of Asia Pacific. (ah)
