"Lufthansa Cargo / DHL Express Joint Venture Airline 'AeroLogic' to Operate Boeing 777 Freighters

Monday January 28, 5:04 AM EST

SEATTLE, Jan 28, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Boeing (BA)today announced that Deucalion Capital VII Limited ("Deucalion"), a company advised and managed by DVB Bank AG, has purchased eight Boeing 777 Freighters for lease to AeroLogic, a new joint venture airline formed by Lufthansa Cargo and DHL Express.

Valued at $2 billion at list prices, the eight 777 Freighters were ordered by Avion Group of Iceland in 2005. Avion Group terminated its order and the airplanes were picked up by Deucalion in late 2007.

Deucalion will lease the freighters to AeroLogic, the joint venture first announced by Lufthansa Cargo and DHL Express last year, for cargo services on European-Asian routes. AeroLogic will operate out of Leipzig, Germany.

"The 777 Freighter's twin-engine fuel efficiency, low noise and overall capability are perfectly suited for our new cargo service out of Leipzig," said AeroLogic Managing Director Dr. Thomas Papke. "Its combination of long range and maximum payload make it a highly economical and profitable freighter. I can't imagine another freighter that would work as well as the 777 Freighter in meeting our demanding environmental and performance targets."

The 777 Freighter will be capable of flying 4,885 nautical miles (9,045 kilometers) with a full payload, making it the world's longest-range freighter. With the lowest trip cost of any large freighter and excellent ton-mile economics, the 777 Freighter will build on the 777 family's demonstrated success in delivering lower fuel consumption, maintenance costs and operating costs than other airplanes in its class.

"As one of the newest members of the Boeing family of freighters, the 777 Freighter is a symbol of our commitment to offering customers the most capable and efficient freighters in the world," said Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales for Europe, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "With a record 83 orders for freighters in 2007, our freighter family is recognized by customers around the world as offering superior performance. I look forward to our partnership with AeroLogic as the 777 Freighter becomes a cornerstone of its success."

The 777 Freighter will feature unmatched capacity and range for a twin-engine freighter and is designed to facilitate seamless interlining with the 747 freighter. With a maximum takeoff weight of 766,000 pounds (347,450 kilograms), the 777 Freighter will have a revenue payload capability of more than 226,000 pounds (103 metric tons). In addition, the 777 Freighter will meet QC2 noise standards for maximum accessibility to noise-sensitive airports.

About AeroLogic GmbH

AeroLogic GmbH is jointly owned by DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo AG, with each company holding a 50 percent stake. The airline, which was founded in September 2007 and is based in Leipzig/Schkeuditz, developed from the joint venture set up by the two partners in 2004. The company currently has about 20 employees. In all, AeroLogic is expected to generate about 250 new jobs, roughly 200 of which will be for cockpit crew. By 2012, the AeroLogic fleet will encompass eleven leased Boeing 777-200Fs, the first four of which are scheduled for delivery at the beginning of 2009. AeroLogic's cargo capacities will mainly be used by DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo. The two partners will also be responsible for sales and warehouse handling. Operations are being planned around both partners' requirements: on weekdays, freighters will fly to Asian destinations in the express network operated by DHL Express. At weekends, they will supplement Lufthansa Cargo's services. For customers of the parent companies, AeroLogic will mean more capacity, more flexibility, an expanded network and improved operating times.

I couldn't agree with you more. Perhaps their livery will make up for the boring, already-used, name. We'll have to  crossfingers .

An all-white plane with only titles in it? Puh-lease... I'd take DHL yellow and red over this mistake anytime. Eurowhite at its worst IMO.

I hope they change it before they take the delivery. This paint scheme doesn't do the justice to the Mighty Triple Seven.

That is a boring and unappealing livery. If the yellow/red DHL livery was adopted that would have been nicer and attract more attention in my opinion. Either way, good luck to Aerologic.

Don't forget that this company is supposed to be neutral. Painting the a/c into the regular DHL livery would give it a particular identity, which is a competitor to other high volume customers.

As a manager for Panalpina or Kuehne & Nagel, I will try to avoid to put my freight on a DHL aircraft which also stands for what used to be Danzas.

AeroLogic sells space on the weekend to LCAG and they retail it to their customers which are the freight forwarders.


Next to NewCo - the fun is not over. There will be another new cargo airline which will operate the 6 763F ordered by DHL on services to North America.The name of that company will be released in February. (and the livery as well I guess)

BTW -so much for FX buying DHL.................

Well thats the kind of "livery" I would be very shy to ask more than 1000 Euros for if I´d be in charge of the design agency. Did I say "livery", no, thats a no-design. If it would have been a crappy owner from Absurdistan, ok, but who would have expected such shit from LH and DHL? Plain awful.

ORD and JFK are the only routes in the US. No routes to Canada or South America and the main focus will be in Asia.
I guess other cities in the US and Canada see enough service with DHL and LH Cargo and the Aero Logic routes are only supplement.

Incredible how much importance is being attached to their livery by some people here  Yeah sure
Maybe this is just a preliminary design?? And even if it's the final design, so what?! It's a cargo airline. Who cares for a catchy livery, except some A.net freaks...

I don´t understand that an aviation fan say such things, but maybe you are not. What do you want to say, that you just accidentally surfed this website? I guess, you still like aircraft, like their beauty - and the livery is an integral part of it, it can make a beauty look bad and an ugly plane acceptable.

Nothing more has to be said. This is a site for aviation enthusiasts and not for airline business people and therefore things like a livery can be discussed here.
