Cathay Pacific Airways has ordered three additional Boeing 747-8 freighters, bringing to 13 the total number of 747-8Fs it has ordered.

Eight 747-8Fs have already been delivered to the Hong Kong-based carrier. The latest order also includes options for five 777Fs.

Boeing said it has now received orders for 70 747-8Fs from nine customers; 28 have been delivered to six airlines.

Cathay Pacific said in a filing last week with the Hong Kong stock exchange that it has cancelled orders for eight 777Fs. These aircraft appear to be the eight 777Fs Air China said it was ordering last week to be used by Air China Cargo, which is a joint venture between Air China and Cathay Pacific.
