The order is valued at $357.5 million at list prices and is the 14th 747-8 Freighter the cargo carrier has ordered from Boeing.

"The Cargolux Board of Directors approved the order of our 14th 747-8 Freighter almost 35 years to the day that the airline took delivery of its first 747 Freighter ever," said Richard Forson, interim president and CEO of Cargolux. "

Cargolux was the world's first operator of the 747-8 Freighter, taking its first delivery of the aircraft type in October 2011. The airline currently operates a total of nine 747-8 Freighters.

Boeing began delivering 747-8s with performance-improved engines last December as part of the Performance Improvement Package (PIP) program. According to Boeing, the engines improve the aircraft’s efficiency by 1.8%.
