Lufthansa Cargo says it will begin equipping all its Boeing 777 freighters with AeroSHARK surface technology from 2023. The technology, developed by sister company Lufthansa Technik and BASF is a surface film that mimics the microscopic structure of shark skin and offers savings in fuel and emissions. Lufthansa Technik expects fuel savings of just over 1% which, across Lufthansa Cargo’s entire 777 fleet, will save 4,000 tonnes of kerosene and nearly 13,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Lufthansa Cargo’s first AeroSHARK-modified Boeing 777 freighter, took off for the first time from Frankfurt on 3 February, heading for Bengaluru in India and Chengdu, China.
