Lufthansa Group’s joint venture AeroLogic is to take its fleet of freighters to a dozen this year, with the addition of another Boeing 777F.
The aircraft will be leased from Boeing, says Lufthansa Cargo, which shares ownership of AeroLogic with DHL Express.
It states that the aircraft will be based at Leipzig-Halle airport once it arrives in the autumn.
Lufthansa Cargo had disclosed last year that it was intending to acquire three 777Fs, two for its own Frankfurt operation and the third for AeroLogic.
This AeroLogic aircraft is set to arrive in February, along with one of the two Frankfurt aircraft – the other being introduced in late March.
Lufthansa Cargo will market the capacity for the two AeroLogic 777Fs (D-AALK and D-AALL).
