Apr 04, 2017: Aircraft lessor Intrepid Aviation has celebrated the delivery of the first of two new B747-8 Freighters from the Boeing Company on March 31 and placed the General Electric GEnx powered aircraft on very long term lease with AirBridgeCargo Airlines, a part of the Volga-Dnepr Group.
“AirBridgeCargo has evolved into one of the world’s leading freight carriers, offering a range of specialised services, including their heritage in the movement of heavy and outsized cargo, to its many customers around the globe,” noted Doug Winter, Intrepid’s president and chief commercial officer.
“This delivery is a further testament to the strength of our partnership and the collaborative, flexible approach we have enjoyed in executing on the investment commitment we first made with Boeing back in 2014,” observed Olaf Sachau, Intrepid’s chief executive officer.
“The nose-loading B747-8 Freighter is a differentiated, uniquely capable aircraft that will play a meaningful role in the conduct of global trade and supply chain management for many years to come,” Sachau added.
“On behalf of AirBridgeCargo and the Volga-Dnepr Group, we are pleased to enter this long-term partnership with Intrepid and look forward to taking delivery of a second B747-8 Freighter from them later this year,” commented Ekaterina Chuychenko, Fleet Development director of the Volga-Dnepr Group.
“We are pleased that the number of financiers who recognise the benefits of this state-of-the-art aircraft is increasing,” Chuychenko concluded.
