An MD-11 freighter in the Lufthansa Cargo fleet is named “Namaste India” (Greeting to India) on flights in the carrier’s global network. The aircraft with the registration D-ALCJ was named by Dr. Alexis von Hoensbroech, Board Member Products & Sales of Lufthansa Cargo, and His Excellency Shri Ashok Gajapathi Raju Pusapati, Honourable Union Minister of Civil Aviation, during a ceremony at Indira Gandhi International Airport. In keeping with Indian tradition, a coconut was broken for the plane to be sprinkled with India’s typical beverage.



The freighter was named “Namaste India”, symbolising the significance of India as one of the most important markets for global air freight services. Dr. Alexis von Hoensbroech states: “The ‘Namaste India’ greeting also illustrates the special bond between Lufthansa Cargo and India. We are proud to be the leading European cargo carrier from India to Europe.”

Lufthansa Cargo has had long-standing connections with customers in the Indian air cargo industry since 1959 and grew further with the first freighter operations in the 1970s. Lufthansa Cargo is today offering 59 weekly flights between India and Europe including the services of Lufthansa Passenger Airlines and Austrian Airlines.
