Deutsche Lufthansa AG’s cargo division said it’s seeking more freighter planes to keep pace with booming global demand and that purchases could include Airbus SE’s new A350F model.

Lufthansa Cargo is making the case at group level for adding more single-aisle and wide-body planes, including additional Boeing Co. 777F freighters to ply long-haul routes, unit chief Dorothea von Boxberg said in an interview.
