strengthens africa services by ‘Jambo Kenya’
Lufthansa Cargo has received `Jambo Kenya’ the second Boeing 777 freighter at Frankfurt Airport, just one week after a Lufthansa Cargo Boeing 777F made its maiden commercial flight. The new aircraft Jambo Kenya ( Hello Kenya), symbolising the significance of Africa as one of the most important growth markets for global air freight services. Lufthansa Cargo already flies to four destinations within the emerging continent at present.
According to the Lufthansa Cargo sources, the `Jambo Kenya’ greeting also illustrates the special bond between the air freight carrier and Nairobi. Lufthansa Cargo not only flies four times a week to Kenya’s capital, but is also deeply socially rooted there. By investing in five brand new Boeing Triple Sevens as part of the Lufthansa Cargo 2020 future programme, the cargo airline is not just focussing on modernisation, but also growth. Each of these freighters can carry up to 103 tonne of freight, transporting it non-stop for more than 9,000 km.
