DHL, Lufthansa launch low-emissions cargo service

aerologic_01AeroLogic, a low-emissions aircraft joint venture of DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo, has begun serving new cargo air routes between Europe and Asia.

AeroLogic was created to provide efficient air transport services on the Europe-Asia trade lane, which is expected to grow by about 5 per cent a year over the mid term. The airline will initially serve the express routes Leipzig – Bahrain – Singapore – Delhi – Leipzig on weekdays and the cargo routes Leipzig – Tashkent – Hong Kong – Tashkent – Leipzig on weekends. By 2010, the airline will gradually expand the network to offer new direct connections to most of Asia’s major metropolitan areas.

AeroLogic will operate with eight new leased B777F freighters, the first four of which are expected to be delivered this year. The aircraft feature advanced fuel-saving and environmental-friendly engine and wing technology, with a maximum payload capacity of 103 tonnes and a range of over 9000 kilometres.

“The B777F is regarded as the most environmentally-friendly freighter, because this aircraft type sets itself apart with its low fuel consumption and a low noise level in comparison with other aircraft of this size,” said Carsten Spohr, CEO of Lufthansa Cargo. “It is also the most modern and efficient aircraft currently available for long-haul intercontinental freight flights.”
