The German company, Lufthansa Cargo has decided to bring in two new Boeing freighters. The company’s decision-making bodies have approved Lufthansa Cargo’s operation of two brand-new Boeing 777F freighters. Two brand new Boeing 777F freighters were ordered; however, the question on who would manage, and operate these two new freighters are undetermined.

 

The jets are expected to be ferried from the Boeing plant in Seattle to their future base in Frankfurt am Main in February and March 2019 already. “We are thrilled to soon be welcoming two brand-new freighters to our Triple Seven fleet. This major investment in the future of Lufthansa Cargo has been made possible by last year’s outstanding results.

 

This is a fitting reward for the tremendous efforts of all Lufthansa Cargo employees and emphasizes that we have taken the right course at an early stage”, said Peter Gerber, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of the cargo airline.

 

The new aircraft will enable a modernization of the fleet and are expected to replace MD-11F freighters in the long term. Given how well the market is performing at the moment, Lufthansa Cargo will continue to operate some of the MD-11Fs earmarked for retirement for the time being so as to provide customers with more valuable cargo capacity as needed.
