With a strong presence in the airfreight market, the U-Freight Group must have loaded thousands of tonnes of freight onto Boeing 747 freighters since we were formed in 1968, and notes news that the aircraft manufacturer has handed over the final 747 freighter to be manufactured at the company’s wide body factory to Atlas Air.
In July 2020, Boeing announced its decision to end the production of the B747-8F by 2022 and January 2021 saw Atlas Air place its order for four of the aircraft – the last of their kind to roll off the production line.
Production of the 747 began back in 1967. Since then, 1,574 aircraft have been manufactured.
