Lufthansa’s B777F has started its daily flights to Shanghai Pudong Airport since last week.
“We are strengthening our position in China considerably through the use of the best freighter in its class”, emphasised Christian Haug, Regional Director North and Central. “The Triple Seven is already setting standards in reliability and other areas in just the first few months since we introduced the new aircraft model. With the new aircraft, we are continuing to invest for our customers in our dense, high-frequency network.”
As a sign of the special ties with China, the B777F bearing registration D-ALFC was christened “Ni Hao, China” (“Good Day, China”) on arrival in Shanghai.
