Market-leading aircraft technology
Atlas Air invests in aircraft with superior operating economics. Our highly efficient and reliable Boeing 747-400 freighter fleet
is the industry benchmark for operating performance due to its cost and capacity advantage over other freighters. Atlas Air is
the world’s only 747-400F ACMI provider. Designed as a freighter, not adapted for cargo, the 747-400F provides nearly half of
the world’s freighter capacity and can accommodate outsized, unusual or sensitive cargo.

Our market position is further enhanced by our order for 12 new-technology Boeing 747-8Fs, with deliveries expected to begin in 2010. Atlas Air is the only ACMI operator investing in this new freighter. With improved range, better payload, cleaner engines and less noise than the already efficient 747-400F, the 747-8F offers unprecedented value for our customers. The 747-8F has 16% more fuel efficiency thanks to new-technology engines and wing design and can carry 16% more volume.
