President of Boeing Commercial Airplanes to pay working visit to Baku

“President of Boeing Commercial Airplanes Kevin McAllister will pay a working visit to Baku,” said President of Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL) Jahangir Asgarov at a meeting with President and CEO of Cargolux Richard Forson.  

The President of AZAL informed Richard Forson that, on his invitation, President and Chief Executive Officer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes Kevin McAllister will pay a working visit to Baku in the coming weeks. An invitation was extended to Mr. Forson to participate in such a meeting regarding the future of wide-body freighter aircraft.

Jahangir Asgarov expressed his concern regarding Boeing's potential decision to stop the production of Boeing 747-8F aircraft. In particular, there will be a need to purchase 20 Boeing 747-8F aircrafts for Azerbaijani civil aviation within the next 10 years. Therefore, Asgarov intends to make a request to Boeing Corporation to continue the production of this type of aircraft.
