Evergreen to fly a 747-400BCF in 2012

EVERGREEN International Airlines will introduce a 747-400 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) to its fleet in 2012.

It will be the 50th 747-400 converted by Boeing, although the manufacturer has contracted Taikoo Aircraft Engineering (TAECO) in Xiamen (China) to do the work.

“This new Boeing 747-400BCF will provide a new dimension for our operations,” said Evergreen International Airlines president, Blair Berselli. “The airplane will bring improvements in economics, efficiency and environmental performance and, since Boeing is responsible for the modification, we know that the airplane will receive the superior support that we have come to expect from Boeing.”

Evergreen International Airlines currently operates nine 747-200 freighters. Evergreen previously operated three Boeing 747LCF oversized freighters for Boeing, but the contract was controversially given to Atlas Air in September 2010.
