Boeing has previously said it plans to deliver the first 747-8 Freighter to launch customer Cargolux in the middle of this year. In Monday’s announcement, the company said the first delivery would be ‘later this summer.’

The first Intercontinental is scheduled for delivery in the fourth quarter to a private customer, reportedly the government of Kuwait. Lufthansa is set to get the first airline Intercontinental early next year.

Boeing sent a 787 Dreamliner last year to the Farnborough (U.K.) International Airshow, which alternates years with Paris. In addition to the 747s, Boeing plans to show off its first 787, an Air Berlin 737-700 with the new Boeing Sky Interior, a Qatar Airways Boeing 777-200LR, a C-17 Globemaster III military airlifter an F-15E Strike Eagle fighter jet and a CH-47F Chinook heavy-lift helicopter to the show, which starts June 20. The military aircraft will be part of the U.S. Department of Defense display throughout the show.

‘We are excited to bring to the Paris Air Show the world’s newest and most innovative family of commercial airplanes,’ Tom Downey, senior vice president, Boeing Communications, said in the announcement.
