Default Qantas to replace Boeing 747-400F freighters with larger capacity 747-8F

Qantas to replace Boeing 747-400F freighters with larger capacity 747-8F

Qantas is replacing two Boeing 747-400F freighters with the larger-capacity 747-8F from July 2019.

The change represents a 20 per cent increase in freight capacity, Qantas announced on Thursday, with the 747-8F able to carry an additional seven pallets compared with the 747-400F.

Currently, the two 747-400Fs are operated by Altas Air on behalf of Qantas. The aircraft, which have Atlas Air livery, operate between Australia, China, New Zealand and the United States, according to flight schedules on the Qantas Freight website.

Atlas Air supplies the aircraft and crew, as well as looks after the maintenance and insurance, under a wet-lease arrangement. Qantas sells cargo space, with the flights operated under the airline’s QF code.

The 747-8Fs will also have the Atlas Air livery and operate under a similar arrangement.
