Just 30 passenger Boeing 747’s in operation worldwide


Resulting from the corona crisis, there are currently only 30 passenger Boeing 747s in operation worldwide, Cirium data illustrates.

In total, there are currently 502 Boeing 747s flying, grounded or on order by airlines. Among these are 162 passenger 747s and 347 cargo versions. However, only 30 of these passenger versions are currently operational. This amounts to just 19 percent of all passenger 747s. Many airlines have grounded four-engined aircraft as a result of the corona crisis. In addition to the 747s, this also concerns primarily the Airbus A380s and A340s.


The situation is quite different with regard to cargo flights. Demand for freight transport has increased in recent months, as much less cargo can be transported aboard passenger aircraft. Only 24 freight 747s are now grounded. 308 aircraft, or 89 percent of the total number of cargo versions, are currently in use. Fifteen 747s are still on order. For the time being, Boeing has delivered one 747 this year.
