Lufthansa Cargo expands network and adds new destinations in China

Lufthansa Cargos new stations opened in Zhengzhou and Shenzhen

Lufthansa Cargo flies to two more Asian stations with its B777F long-haul fleet from its home hub in Frankfurt.

The carrier has now added Shenzhen Boa’an International Airport (SZX) to its freighter network for the first time and will serve it twice a week in future.

The Lufthansa Group’s logistics expert has also recently started operating freighters to Zhengzhou (CGO) three days a week.

“In the Chinese market, the e-commerce business segment in particular is growing steadily, and we continue to see high demand, especially to Europe.

Accordingly, additional air freight capacity is needed to transport goods quickly, compliantly and safely.

Ashwin Bhat, CEO of Lufthansa Cargo explains: “With the expansion of our Asian network, we can now serve even more important freight destinations in China for our customers.

“This will be possible thanks to the new B777F freighter, which we expect to receive in the course of this summer.

“This will not only mean enabling global business for our customers in a sustainable way, but also growing as a company in an important cargo region”.
