EUROPE & CIS: AeroLogic expands network with new 777Fs AeroLogic, the joint venture cargo airline of DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo, is expanding its network, following delivery of two additional 777 freighters last month. The company has begun daily flights from Leipzig to Hong Kong, four of them non-stop, as well as weekend flights from Frankfurt to Atlanta and Chicago during the current winter schedule.

“Demand for Europe to Asia and Europe to US remains stable, despite the weakened world economy and is expected to increase in the mid term,” Aerologic said in a statement. AeroLogic’s new routes offer excellent opportunities for DHL Express. Trade between Europe and Asia remained at a high level during the recent crisis, indicating a structural demand in both regions for the other’s products and commodities,” DHL’s CEO Ken Allen said of the network expansion.

Lufthansa Cargo CEO, Carsten Spohr added: “With destinations in North America we can now further expand our dense network to the United States. Especially on weekends we see a high demand for capacity from and to our hubs in Atlanta and Chicago. With the Boeing 777 the Lufthansa Cargo Group can now offer its customers three different freighter types: the MD-11 of Lufthansa Cargo, the Boeing 747- 400 of Jade Cargo International and AeroLogic´s Boeing 777.”
