Boeing, ABC Airlines agree to 747 Freighters Landing Gear Programme
Jan 27, 2017: Russia based AirBridgeCargo Airlines will receive fully overhauled and certified landing gear to support nine of its 747 Freighters through the Boeing Landing Gear Overhaul and Exchange Programme, with an ultimate commitment covering 18 additional 747s in the airline’s fleet.
Boeing’s Landing Gear Overhaul and Exchange Programme provides a simple and economical solution for managing landing gear overhauls.
Through the Programme, landing gear that needs to be repaired or overhauled can be exchanged for another set of certified landing gear from a pool that Boeing maintains, eliminating the need for customers to contract, schedule and manage the overhaul process.
“The Boeing Landing Gear Overhaul and Exchange Programme is a comprehensive solution for our freighter fleet that will allow us to efficiently maintain our aircraft in the required technical condition and ensure we continue to deliver the highest level of service quality for our global customers,” said Sergey Lazarev, general director, AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
In July, Boeing and Volga-Dnepr Group signed the long-term partnership agreement and announced an agreement to explore future services opportunities.
AirBridgeCargo was the first cargo carrier in Russia to operate the Boeing 747-8 Freighter. Its fleet now consists of 16 747s including four Boeing 747-400ERFs, three Boeing 747-400Fs and nine Boeing 747-8 Freighters.
