Boeing confirmed that Lufthansa Cargo finalized a previously announced order for five 777 freighters valued at $1.35 billion based on list prices. “The 777 freighter is highly regarded for its fuel efficiency and a noise footprint significantly smaller than comparable freighters,” said LHC Chairman and CEO Karl Ulrich Garnadt. “We are certain that these airplanes will benefit our customers greatly, as experienced by our AeroLogic joint venture [with DHL Express], which already operates eight 777 freighters.” The 777s will be needed for LHC's growth from 2016-2020, he told ATW previously.
