Lufthansa Cargo has welcomed the latest arrival to its freighter fleet: the ninth Boeing 777F, which flew into Frankfurt Airport from the Boeing facility at Everett, Washington state, in the USA, on Septemeber 29.
The new aircraft bears the name “¡Buenos días México!”, which it took over from an aircraft with the registration D-ALCH that had already been taken out of service.
With the new addition, Lufthansa Cargo now operates nine modern Triple Seven at its home hub in Frankfurt. In addition, the company is marketing the cargo capacity of four more aircraft of this type, which are operated by the AeroLogic joint venture based at Leipzig Airport.
“Mastering short-term global challenges is one of our core competencies, countering long-term global challenges is our responsibility. With our new fleet we are underlining our claim to actively and sustainably combine economic and ecological efficiency,” said Peter Gerber, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Lufthansa Cargo.
The twin-engine Boeing 777F is around 20 per cent more efficient and emits less carbon dioxide than the preceeding MD-11F. In addition, the new model meets the strict noise protection requirements of ICAO Annex 16, Volume I, Chapter 14. Due to the higher cargo capacity and range, the same freight performance can be achieved in the future with noticeably fewer aircraft movements.
