Lufthansa Cargo has welcomed its eighth brand-new Boeing 777F aircraft at Frankfurt Airport (FRA). The cargo aircraft with registration D-ALFH was in flight for 9 hours and 24 minutes as LH8145 after its take-off from Everett Airport (PAE) in Washington State, U.S.A. It is the eighth aircraft of this type in Lufthansa Cargo’s freighter fleet.

Lufthansa Cargo had announced the purchase of two brand-new cargo aircraft in November 2019. The second aircraft is expected in a few weeks. The new arrivals are part of a fleet modernization program that began in 2014 and will be completed next year. The twin-engine Boeing 777F is around 20% more efficient and emits less CO2 than the previously used three-engine MD-11F. The new model also meets the strict noise protection requirements of ICAO Annex 16, Volume I, Chapter 14.
