Lufthansa Cargo acquires another Boeing 777F

Jun 01, 2021

Another brand-new Boeing 777F aircraft is being added to Lufthansa Cargo’s highly efficient freighter fleet. Delivery of the aircraft is expected before the end of this year. A total of fifteen full-freighters will then be in service for Lufthansa Cargo’s customers.

“We are very pleased that we will be able to offer our customers additional freighter capacity in the future. The Corona crisis has impressively underlined how important these aircraft are for global supply,” said Dorothea von Boxberg, Lufthansa Cargo’s Chief Executive Officer.

The twin-engine Boeing 777F has a standard payload capacity of 103 metric tons with a range of more than 9,000 kilometers. It is the most efficient freighter in its class and significantly more silent than previously operated three- or four-engine models.

Most recently, in March, Lufthansa Cargo announced the fourteenth aircraft of this type for fall 2021.
