Lufthansa Cargo will significantly accelerate the modernization of its fleet by purchasing two more brand-new Boeing 777F freighters. Lufthansa Group and Supervisory Board have approved the corresponding investments. The aircraft will be delivered by the manufacturer in 2020 and be based in Frankfurt. The ten older MD-11 freighters, which have already been partially replaced by Boeing 777F this year, are expected to be withdrawn from the fleet by the end of 2020.

“We are investing in maximum reliability and significantly lower emissions,” said Peter Gerber, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Lufthansa Cargo. “The modernization of our fleet is the biggest contribution we can make to the future in the short term. We combine responsibility for our company with corporate responsibility,” Gerber continued.

Due to the higher cargo capacity and range, the same freight performance can be achieved in the future with noticeably fewer aircraft movements. Overall, Lufthansa Cargo’s customers will have the same freighter capacity at their disposal at the end of the rollover as they had at the beginning when eighteen MD-11Fs were in operation for Lufthansa’s cargo arm. In addition to its own fleet, Lufthansa Cargo can also utilize the cargo capacity of four Boeing 777Fs operated by AeroLogic.

In addition to its own fleet, Lufthansa Cargo also markets the belly hold capacities of Lufthansa German Airlines, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings and SunExpress. In total, around half of the cargo is carried in passenger aircraft’s belly holds.
