145 cultural artifacts transported aboard Cargolux
Nov 9, 2018: Cargolux has transported invaluable historical artifacts between Zhengzhou and Luxembourg as part of a cultural exchange agreement between China’s Henan Museum and Luxembourg’s Musée National d'Histoire et d'Art (MNHA).
A total of three tonnes comprising 145 cultural artifacts were loaded aboard Cargolux flight CV975. They arrived early this morning after a 10 hour flight from the carrier’s China hub in Zhengzhou to its home base in Luxembourg.
The carrier said that transporting fragile artwork and ancient artifacts requires special attention, often involving months of careful planning and coordination.
The Luxembourg-based carrier stated: "A successful endeavor requires not only the use of customized packaging but also extra careful handling, both on the ground as well as in the air.
"This ambitious initiative is set to be repeated next year when the exhibition is returned to China after its European stint"
Richard Forson, president and chief executive, Cargolux said: "Our expert teams, who are well-versed in the transportation of sensitive and precious cargo, have meticulously prepared this move to ensure a smooth transport process."
The collection will be displayed at the MNHA as part of an exhibition entitled “The Origins of Chinese Civilization: Archeological Treasures from Henan.”
These items, that provide an overview of 3,000 years of Chinese heritage, include some of the earliest-known examples of Chinese bronze ritual vessels and jade ornaments dating back to the Xia and Shang Dynasties.
