Lufthansa Cargo’s first Airbus 321 freighter took off for service for the first time on March 15, 2022. Under flight number LH8350, the A321F took off from Frankfurt (FRA) to Dublin (DUB) before continuing to Manchester (MAN). The freighter, christened “Hello Europe,” was loaded with express freight and general cargo on its maiden flight. The twin-engine aircraft is operated by Lufthansa CityLine.

With this market launch, Lufthansa Cargo is responding to the continued growth in demand from the e-commerce industry and can thus offer customers even more capacity and additional fast connections.

To date, Lufthansa Cargo operates a freighter fleet of 15 of its own B777F aircraft. The second A321 medium-haul freighter is expected to enter service in late summer 2022. Both aircraft will be operated under a wet-lease agreement by Lufthansa CityLine, each under Lufthansa Cargo’s flight number.
