[ October 10, 2016   //   ]

Volga-Dnepr has taken delivery of its tenth new 747-8 freighter at a handover ceremony in Everett, US. It brings ABC’s fleet to 16 747 freighters and following the group’s confirmation in July of an order for 20 similar aircraft. Future deliveries will lead to the phasing out of the remaining 747-400Fs in AirBridgeCargo’s fleet. The handover event also celebrated the launch by ABC of twice-weekly 747-8F services from Seattle to Moscow via Chicago and Europe.
