From November 2013, Lufthansa Cargo will be flying around the world with brand new B777 freighters. The first three destinations scheduled for the so-called “Triple Seven” evoke the pioneering spirit Lufthansa displayed when developing civilian air traffic across the Atlantic. Atlanta, Chicago, New York: Lufthansa Cargo’s new B777F will initially be bound – just like 41 years ago – for North America.
The B777F is able to remain in the air for ten and a half hours with a payload of 103 tons. During that time it can fly over 9,000 kilometres non-stop. In addition, the aircraft meets the strictest noise protection standards in international civil aviation. This gives it maximum access to airports with strict noise regulations, bringing significant relief to people who live near airports.
