Cathay Pacific Cargo and Lufthansa Cargo move under one roof for Frankfurt ground handling
Jan 24, 2017: Cathay Pacific Cargo is relocating its local cargo handling activities in Frankfurt to the Lufthansa Cargo terminal as part of the cooperation agreement between the two airlines.
The relocation of Cathay Pacific Cargo's freight handling into the Lufthansa Cargo Centre (LCC) in Frankfurt is a core element of the Joint Business Agreement (JBA) that was announced in May 2016 between Cathay Pacific Cargo and Lufthansa Cargo.
The merging of freight handling for imports and exports was concluded on January 17, 2017 and customers of both airlines will benefit.
As part of the cooperation agreement, both airlines are closely working together on network planning and sales as well as IT and service expansion. Both partners plan to transport the first joint shipments as of February 1, 2017 – initially from Hong Kong to Europe. The ability to also book eastbound shipments from Europe to Hong Kong will then follow in 2018.
Simon Large, director Cargo at Cathay Pacific, comments, “Cathay Pacific Cargo’s move into the Lufthansa Cargo Centre is another important step in furthering our collaboration. In addition to providing more direct connections and greater flexibility, we can now offer our customers in Frankfurt the same handling standards that will lead to more efficiency and time savings.”
“This means our customers at the Frankfurt site are now benefiting from the advantages of our cooperation,” explains Peter Gerber, CEO of Lufthansa Cargo.
The joint activities are carried out in full compliance with all applicable laws, including the competition rules of the European Union and Hong Kong.
