Lufthansa Cargo says Jambo Kenya!


Just one week after a Lufthansa Cargo B777F made its maiden commercial flight, the second brand new B777F in the Lufthansa livery has now arrived in Frankfurt as well. The new aircraft has been christened ‘Jambo Kenya’ (‘Hello Kenya’), symbolising the significance of Africa as one of the most important growth markets for global air freight services. Lufthansa Cargo already flies to four destinations within the emerging continent at the moment.

The idea to give the aircraft the greeting Jambo Kenya originated from the winning idea in a creative public competition held by Lufthansa Cargo to find a naming convention for its entire fleet in advance of the arrival of the B777.

From the more than 40,000 potential aircraft names submitted to Lufthansa Cargo within six weeks, a jury with the involvement of the full Cargo Board opted for the central theme to “Say hello around the world”. Accordingly, all freighters in the Lufthansa Cargo fleet – both Boeing 777Fs and MD-11Fs – will henceforth be christened with greetings in more than 20 customary languages.
