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.
