Airport-wise international cargo performance at Indian Airports for August 2013
recently, Lufthansa Cargo acquired its first Boeing 777 freighter and started its first scheduled flight operation to New York. Lufthansa Cargo has ordered a total of five brand new freighters from Boeing ( with a list price of USD 270 million per plane). With this major investment, Lufthansa Cargo is focusing on growth and the modernisation of its fleet. Speaking at the welcome ceremony for the new aircraft Karl Ulrich Garnadt, CEO, Lufthansa Cargo said, “The Boeing 777F is not only the most powerful, efficient and ecological freighter in the world but also a highly visible symbol of our ‘Lufthansa Cargo 2020’ future programme.” Garnadt emphasised that the addition of the twinengine Boeing freighter to the fleet was an important milestone on the airline’s path to shaping a company for the next generation. The airline devised a comprehensive future programme two years ago with the “Lufthansa Cargo 2020” strategy.
