Freight AeroLogic’s Boeing 777 Freighter fleet grows
The German cargo airline AeroLogic has announced it will receive a new Boeing 777 Freighter for its fleet.
The new aircraft with the registration D-AALK is scheduled for delivery in January 2019. Shareholder Lufthansa Cargo will lease the jet from Boeing specifically for this purpose. The fleet of this equal partnership joint venture with DHL Express will then total eleven aircraft. Lufthansa Cargo will market all of the new freighter’s capacity.
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”, emphasised Peter Gerber, CEO and Chairman of the Lufthansa Cargo Executive Board.
“With eleven 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”, said Wolfgang Raebiger, Managing Director of Aerologic GmbH.
DHL Express recently introduced two freighters of the same type and has since been marketing their capacity exclusively. The cargo capacity of the other eight aircraft is mainly used by Lufthansa Cargo at the weekend and DHL Express at other times.
AeroLogic is a joint-venture between Lufthansa Caro and DHL Express. The German cargo airline operates flights to 22 destinations from its hubs in Leipzig/Halle and Frankfurt/Main.
