Starting today, customers of Lufthansa Cargo can book their freight from Frankfurt to the Mexican city of Monterrey.

From 03 June 2024, the logistics expert will offer a connection from its home hub to the North American city.

The entire route goes from Frankfurt to Mexico City (NLU), then onwards to Monterrey International Airport (MTY), and back to Frankfurt.

A B777F will operate on the new route every Monday, which should be particularly interesting for automotive suppliers, electronics providers, and customers transporting medical products.

Ashwin Bhat, CEO of Lufthansa Cargo explains: “We are pleased to add Monterrey as a further station to our freighter network for our customers.

“Connecting the business and industrial city of Monterrey with the European market as the first European cargo airline underscores our strategic growth into new markets and underlines our purpose of Enabling Global Business.

“With this new addition, Lufthansa Cargo will serve North America with up to 33 freighter frequencies weekly and South America with up to 4 frequencies weekly in addition to the belly flights.”
