AeroLogic will receive a brand new Boeing 777 Freighter in January, which Lufthansa Cargo will lease from Boeing for this purpose.
The aircraft is expected to receive the registration D-AALK and will fly from Seattle to Leipzig in January 2019.
The fleet of AeroLogic, a joint venture between Lufthansa Cargo and DHL Express, will grow to 11 aircraft and Lufthansa Cargo will market all of the new aircraft’s capacity.
Lufthansa Cargo chief executive officer and chairman of the executive board, Peter Gerber says: “We are delighted to be in a position to add a brand-new freighter at AeroLogic as well next year. Together with the two new aircraft for the Lufthansa Cargo fleet, this important investment also underscores our long association with our Frankfurt and Leipzig Airport bases.”
AeroLogic managing director, Wolfgang Raebiger says: “With 11 Boeing 777F in the future, we will operate one of the world’s most modern and efficient freighter fleets. This will strengthen our position as an attractive employer at the heart of Germany and ensure flexible additional capacity for our partners.”
