LUFTHANSA CARGO launches intra-European flights


Lufthansa Cargo has launched its new short and medium haul European freighter network with an A321F flight from Frankfurt to Dublin. The network will initially utilise a single A321 freighter – named Hello Europe – flown by Lufthansa Group airline CityLine. In August, a second A321 freighter will be added to the network. The first aircraft will serve the network covering seven destinatio­ns—Frankfurt, Dublin, Manchester, Malta, Tel Aviv, Istanbul and Tunis. A service to Cairo is expected to be added at the end of March 2022. Dorothea von Boxberg, chief executive, Lufthansa Cargo said that the last time Lufthansa Cargo operated intra-European cargo flights was in early 2000s when it offered night time flights carrying mail. Rising e-commerce volumes would be one of the staples of the new flights, she said. “We see that there is an increased demand from customers from within Europe for fast connection­s,” said von Boxberg. “That is what airfreight is about,” she added.
