Lufthansa bags 777F quintet

LUFTHANSA Cargo has confirmed its US$1.35 billion order for five 777Fs.

Lufthansa Cargo first announced its intention to order the freighters in March 2011.
AeroLogic, a joint venture between Lufthansa Cargo and DHL Express, became the fourth carrier to operate the 777 Freighter in May 2009.

The 777 freighter is the world’s longest range twin-engine freighter with a full payload of 102 metric tonnes.

Including the order from Lufthansa Cargo, a total of 88 777Fs have been ordered, of which 39 have been delivered to date.
