As per this agreement Cargolux plans to operate a weekly flight from Luxembourg to Tokyo Narita. Cargolux Italia (above) will stop its operations to Narita but will maintain its services to Osaka (Kansai). The code – share operation is planned to start with the summer season 2018. Both airlines consider the agreement as a first step towards a potentially deeper cooperation.

In addition to this opportunity to develop its activity at Narita, Cargolux also intends to further develope its operations through Komatsu. Together with Cargolux Italia’s operations to Osaka, Cargolux is well placed to provide its customers with comprehensive services to and from Japan.

Nippon Cargo takes delivery of its first new Boeing 747-8F Freighter

Nippon Cargo Airlines-NCA (Tokyo-Narita) has taken delivery of its first new Boeing 747-8F Freighter, marking the Japanese debut for the 747-8F. The new airplane is NCA’s first 747-8F Freighter on order with Boeing.

The airline currently operates eight 747-400F Freighters with two 747-400F Freighters on lease with other airlines.

The environmentally focused Nippon Cargo Airlines will also undertake its first biofuel flight with this milestone 747-8F Freighter delivery. The new airplane will become the first 747-8F to use a blend of environmentally progressive biofuels (jet kerosene and used cooking oil) to fly across the Pacific Ocean.

Nippon Cargo Airlines, one of the launch customers for the 747-8F Freighter in 2005 and also part of a team that helped develop the aircraft, plans to begin revenue service with its new 747-8 Freighter by mid-August on Asia and North American routes.

The 747-8F Freighter will provide double-digit improvements in fuel burn, operating costs and lower emissions over the 747-400F Freighter. The 747-8F Freighter also provides 16 percent more revenue-generating cargo volume and boasts a significantly improved environmental performance. Per tonne-kilometer, its carbon dioxide emissions are 16 percent lower than those of the 747-400F Freighter. It also reduced its noise footprint by more than 30 percent.
