Frankfurt Hahn Receives First 747-8F Service

NCAThe Japanese cargo airline Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA) has become the first carrier to operate Boeing 747-8F services to Frankfurt Hahn Airport.

Last year Hahn – Germany’s fifth largest freight hub – established a new runway end safety area (RESA) zone to enable larger aircraft, such as the Boeing 747-8F, to land there.  NCA says it will operate the 747-8 to Hahn on a frequent basis from now on.

The airport’s Business Manager, Markus Bunk, commented: “NCA’s announcement shows the RESA was the right investment for us.  We needed the RESA to reach our growth targets.”
