Cathay orders six Boeing 747-400ERF freighters

Dubai: Cathay Pacific Airways today made its biggest commitment for new freighter aircraft with an order for six Boeing 747-400ERF, Extended Range Freighters, as it continues to invest in additional cargo capacity to meet aggressive growth plans for the Hong Kong hub.
The six new aircraft are scheduled to arrive between May 2008 and April 2009.
This latest investment, together with an outstanding order of five 747-400BCFs, will further expand Cathay Pacific’s freighter fleet, said a spokesman.
Cathay Pacific last month added the 28th online freighter destination to its network with the launch of a new twice-weekly service to Chennai, India.
