Boeing unveils new Jumbo jet

WASHINGTON (BNS): Boeing has unveiled its new 747-8 Intercontinental, the world’s longest passenger jet in Washington.

The event themed "Incredible, Again" took place at the company's Everett, Washington commercial airplane manufacturing facility.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Albaugh said, “The newest 747 incorporates technological advancements that make it an extremely productive airplane for customers.”

"The new 747-8 Intercontinental features the latest in innovative technologies applying many of the breakthroughs also found on the 787 Dreamliner. We think our customers will value the low operating costs and passengers will enjoy the comfort of the striking new interior," he added.

Boeing has already received 33 jets order from Korean Air and Lufthansa. The first delivery of the 747-8 Intercontinental is scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year.

The new plane will offer airlines the lowest operating costs and best economics of any large passenger airplane while providing enhanced environmental performance.

The 747-8 Intercontinental will have the lowest seat-mile cost of any large commercial jetliner, with 12 percent lower costs than its predecessor, the 747-400, Boeing said.
