Boeing 747-400ER Family: More Payload, More Range, More Revenue for the World's Favorite Airplane

Freighter Version: Flies Farther -- and Carries More

With the lowest operating cost per ton-mile in the industry, the 747-400ER Freighter improves on what is already the most capable cargo transport in the industry.

  • The 747-400ER Freighter has a maximum takeoff weight of 910,000 pounds (412,770 kg).
  • This takeoff weight increase allows the 747-400ER Freighter to fly an additional 525 nautical miles (972 km).
  • Or, it can carry an additional 22,000 pounds (9,980 kg) of payload on long-range flights at maximum takeoff weight.

747-400 Freighters can carry twice as much cargo, twice as far, as the competitor's leading freighter. Along with earlier versions, 747 Freighters -- about 250 in all -- carry half of all the world's freighter air cargo.
