DB Schenker and Lufthansa Cargo launch regular CO2-neutral freight connection from Europe to China

DB Schenker and Lufthansa Cargo launched the first regular carbon neutral cargo flight connection in history this Thursday.

With the take-off of a Boeing 777F at 9:14 a.m. local time today, the companies kicked off weekly flights between Frankfurt am Main and Shanghai Pudong, where the fuel requirements are covered entirely by Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). This will save around 174 metric tons of conventional kerosene each week.
