Historic Airlines Group Has 747 Cargo


Historic Airlines Group Has 747 Cargo

US cargo airlines are booming. This is because 20% of the nation'sair freight goes by commercial airline, and with so many commercialjets parked due to Covid19, cargo carriers are running at maximumcapacity.

Atlas Air will be taking delivery of the last four 747-800's whenthey roll off the assembly line. This will end 747 production byBoeing (UPS still has eight on order, awaiting delivery). This issurprising, considering the number of cargo aircraft in the world isexpected to double in the next 15-20 years. However, there are still35 747 passenger aircraft in service (mostly 747-400), which mayeventually be converted to all cargo. A further 122 passenger 747'sare parked in storage, and could be converted also.

Replacing the 747F are Boeing's other cargo aircraft, the 777F and767F. The 747F can carry 303,700 lbs of cargo. The 777F can carry224,900 lbs, and the 767 carries 115,700. Airbus currently offers onecargo aircraft, the A330F. It can carry up to 130,000 lbs.
