The Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental and 747-8 Freighter are the new, high-capacity 747s that offer airlines the lowest operating costs and best economics of any large passenger or freighter aeroplane-while providing enhanced environmental performance.

This latest family of 747 jetliners meets airline requirements for a passenger aeroplane that serves the 400- to 500-seat market between the 555-seat Airbus A380 and the 365-seat Boeing 777-300 Extended Range aeroplanes, and for a freighter that continues the leadership of the 747 Freighter family in the world cargo market.

Both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic are 747 operators.  The 747-8F is operated by Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Inc affiliate Global Supply Systems for British Airways World Cargo.
