New Boeing 747-8 Freighter Joins Polar Air Cargo

First Flight Was October 3, Second 747-8F Expected In Fourth Quarter

Polar Air Cargo Worldwide, Inc., is pleased to announce that a new Boeing 747-8 Freighter began operations in its fleet on October 3. Another new aircraft is due to join service later in the fourth quarter of 2012. “We are very pleased to have these state-of-the-art 747-8 freighters in our fleet, which will provide our customers with increased capacity and revenue-generating capability on the transpacific lane."

These aircraft will be the first of their type to be flown in Polar’s fleet and will operate in Asian and transpacific markets. They will replace two Boeing 747-400 Freighters currently in service.

“We are very pleased to have these state-of-the-art 747-8 freighters in our fleet, which will provide our customers with increased capacity and revenue-generating capability on the transpacific lane,” said Tom Murphy, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Polar Air Cargo Worldwide. “This is an exciting development for Polar and its broad base of customers, reflecting continued investment in state-of-the-art technology to further support our customers' growth."

Atlas, Titan and Polar offer a range of outsourced aircraft and aviation operating services that include ACMI service – in which customers receive an aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance on a long-term basis; CMI service, for customers that provide their own aircraft; express network and scheduled air cargo service; military cargo and passenger charters; commercial cargo and passenger charters; and dry leasing of aircraft and engines.
