Cargolux launches services from Luxembourg to Jakarta
June 26, 2019: Cargolux has expanded its Asia-Pacific network with the launch of services to Indonesian capital city Jakarta.
The new frequency connects Luxembourg to the Indonesian capital once a week. The flight leaves the Grand-Duchy on Sunday and arrives in Jakarta on Monday. The rotation then continues through Hong Kong and Ashgabat before returning to Luxembourg on Tuesday morning.
With the launch of this route, it becomes the only all-cargo carrier to offer a direct main deck connection between Europe and Indonesia.
The route will allow the airline to cater for a wide variety of commodities, as well as off-size freight such as oil and gas industry equipment, machinery, spare parts or aircraft engines.
The main cargo transiting through the area will include apparel, footwear, pharmaceuticals perishables and live animals.
Domenico Ceci, Cargolux’s executive vice-president Sales & Marketing said: “This new frequency contributes to enhancing our service offering in the South-East Asian region and better connecting us with our customers in the area. Jakarta is an influential commercial center, and we look forward to building local partnerships and furthering the city’s establishment as a global business gateway.”
The thriving Indonesian megalopolis is the world’s second largest urban agglomeration and home to the ASEAN secretariat, making it an attractive commercial destination.
Customers in Jakarta will have the opportunity to benefit from the airline’s extensive road feeder services from Luxembourg hub to a vast choice of European destinations.
Cargolux has actually been doing business in Jakarta for over 23 years, mostly through partnerships and interline agreements so far.
The airline did operate 4 charter flights, 2 inbound and 2 outbound, to CGK in 2018 ahead of the Asian Games.
The inaugural flight took place on June 23 and the aircraft was welcomed by a traditional water salute following touchdown.
