Cargolux added Shannon, Ireland to its global network, and the inaugural flight landed in Shannon on June 9 directly from Seattle.
"The weekly frequency is routed Los Angeles-Seattle-Shannon-Luxembourg, bolstering the airline's transatlantic services," an official statement said.

Cargolux has been operating ad-hoc flights into Shannon for several years, and the regular service cements the airline's commitment to business in the region, the statement said.
