  • 140 tonnes of payload
  • 1,000 nm more range
  • 16% more revenue-cargo volume
  • 15% lower tonne-mile costs
  • 16% reduction in carbon emissions
  • 16% more fuel efficient

Atlas Air is the only ACMI operator with this new freighter on order, with deliveries expected to begin in 2010. We also hold rights to purchase up to 14 additional 747-8Fs, providing the flexibility to expand our fleet in response to market conditions.

When delivered, these aircraft will expand our capacity by 35% (measured in available tonne kilometers) compared with 2007, maintaining our industry-leading position for the foreseeable future.
