总部位于莱比锡的逻辑航空,为DHL快递与汉莎货运航空各占50%股份的合资企业,将于2019年1月开始运营第十一架波音777货机。汉莎货运航空将向波音资本租赁该架飞机,并交由逻辑航空,通过汉莎航空网络,以逻辑航空的运营模式运作。 对汉莎货运航空而言,新增一架由逻辑航空运营的波音777货机,表明其正在积极拓展合资的逻辑航空作为基地航空公司在莱比锡/哈勒机场(LEJ)的货运业务。除了将该架波音777货机交付给逻辑航空,汉莎货运还为其提供了机组人员的配备。目前,德国汉莎货运航空共计拥有五架波音777货机以及12架麦道-11货机,并主要以法兰克福机场作为其货运枢纽运作国际航空网络。 然而,汉莎航空很快熟悉了莱比锡/哈勒机场(LEJ)的枢纽运作模式。首批的八架波音777货机,陆续于2009年5月至2010年7月期间交付逻辑航空并投入运营,该机队平日为DHL快递服役,周末为汉莎航空服役。2017年,逻辑航空从GECAS租借了两架原隶属于南美航空的波音777货机,并为DHL快递提供专属服务。明年,逻辑航空也将为汉莎航空提供同样的专属服务。 2018年1月,新增的波音777货机加入逻辑航空机队。汉莎航空表示,该飞机与汉莎航空向波音公司订购的两架波音777货机并无关联,但并没有透漏更多关于其与波音资本的商务细节。鉴于,该笔订单成交与约定交付日期之间的间隔较短,《空运通讯》认为,汉莎航空向波音资本租赁的该架波音777货机,原本可能是另一位客户所订购的,但因为某些原因该订单交付被推迟或取消。根据波音公司截至2018年7月的客户摘要显示,总部位于阿布扎比的阿提哈德航空,尚有一笔波音777货机的订单未完成。鉴于阿提哈德航空最近的业务重组,并停航了五架空客330-200货机,《空运通讯》认为,其很有可能不再接收第六架货机。 随着新的波音777货机加入逻辑航空,汉莎航空正在重建其货运机队。今年5月,汉莎航空集团与波音公司签订了两架波音777货机的订单,预计将于2019年2月及3月交付,并都将在法兰克福机场(FRA)进行运营。 虽然根据计划,该两架货机将取代汉莎航空现有货运机队中的两架旧款麦道-11货机,但汉莎航空同样表示,只要航空货运市场的运作符合其成本收益的考核要求,也可能选择考虑该两架麦道-11货机不退役并将继续运营。
