Lufthansa Cargo Takes Off for The Future with New Freighters

At its meeting recently, the Supervisory Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG approved the order of two Boeing "Triple Seven" (B 777F) for Lufthansa Cargo. Delivery is already on the way: in both February and March 2019, a newly built aircraft each will take off from the Boeing plant in Seattle, USA headed for Germany.

The investment reflects the financial success of Lufthansa Cargo. With its C40 efficiency program and Cargo Evolution strategy, the airline initiated a comprehensive future program two years ago.

Further projects to drive forward the modernization of the airline are already being implemented. For example, the  infrastructure at the Hub in Frankfurt is being modernized substantially, and a new CoolCenter is under investment at the Hub in Munich. The freight crane is also advancing the digitization of the entire process chain.

Lufthansa Cargo customers benefit from the enormous range of the twin-jet aircraft. With a full payload of 103 tons, the B 777F is able to stay in the air for ten and a half hours. It covers a distance of more than 9,000 kilometers non-stop.

The modernization of the fleet also significantly reduces the burden on the environment. The specific CO2 emissions of the B 777F are almost 20% lower than those of the existing MD-11 freighters. Lufthansa Cargo is thus taking the next major step towards achieving its ambitious environmental goals.

The use of the B 777 freighters is also good news for residents living close to the airport. The brand-new jet is much quieter than other cargo aircraft in its class.

Lufthansa Cargo stands by the commitment to noticeably reduce noise pollution for local residents.
