In a major boost to its flagging 747 program,
Boeing received a new order for four 747-8 freighters from Atlas Air, the companies announced Tuesday.

Boeing, which plans to deliver the airplanes from May through October 2022,
expects them to account for the last four 747-8Fs it produces.
Now building 747s at a rate of one every two months, Boeing confirmed in July 2020
that it would close its jumbo jet line in 2022.

The planemaker, however, did not clarify whether it was a new order or a renegotiation of previous orders.
Currently, there are 12 units of the 747-8 pending delivery,
nine for UPS and three for Volga-Dnepr.
The Russian cargo company, however, does not have the order secured by accounting issues.
