Extra China flights as Lufthansa Cargo upgrades network

Extra China flights as Lufthansa Cargo upgrades network

Lufthansa Cargo is to upgrade its network with extra freighter flights to China, and use belly-hold capacity on passenger aircraft.

Cargo operations to China will be increased with nine Boeing 777 Freighter flights a week to Shanghai, up from seven, and it will exclusively use 777Fs instead of mixing it up with Boeing MD-11 Freighters, while it will fly to Guangzhou five times a week from July, up from one.

Lufthansa will use belly-hold space on Eurowings flights on twice-weekly Airbus A330 flights to Las Vegas from June, and Seattle, Orlando and Windhoek will be added on 2 July, and cargo stations are planned in the Cuban cities of Varadero and Havana.

The German carrier is extending its partnerships, having announced a joint venture with United Cargo, following collaboration with All Nippon Airways Cargo of Japan and Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific Cargo.
