Kuehne+Nagel signs agreement with Atlas Air for two B747-8 freighters
Kuehne+Nagel enters into a long-term dedicated charter agreement with Atlas Air, a subsidiary of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings to operate two Boeing 747-8 freighters, the most capable freighter aircraft in the world.
Kuehne+Nagel will charter the entire and exclusive capacity of the two new B747-8F aircraft to operate the flights globally from the third and fourth quarters of 2022.
The aircraft will support Kuehne+Nagel customers on volatile trade lanes, such as the transpacific routes. The 747-8F provides 20 percent higher payload and 16 percent lower fuel consumption than the very capable 747-400F.
