Lufthansa boosts capacity and network with two new freighters


LUFTHANSA has announced a 10 per cent increase in cargo capacity, set to take effect over the course of 2019’s summer schedule, with two new Boeing 777 freighters. The birds will cater for increased frequencies in

Asia and the Americas. Two flights per week will be added to the Frankfurt-Narita service, with an MD-11 completing this journey via Novosibirsk. This same aircraft will also be used as the carrier bolsters its weekly

Frankfurt-Osaka connections by one to three times-a-week, with Lufthansa returning to its home hub via Incheon. Hong Kong and Mumbai will see their connections go daily, with the service to Chennai and Ho Chi Minh

both doubling to twice a week. In the Americas, Atlanta will now become a daily connection for the carrier, while Chicago will go from eight to 12 flights per week.

Changes are also afoot in Central and South America, with Mexico City getting its very own direct connection from a 777 freighter, as part of a Frankfurt-Buenos Aires-Viracopos-Montevideo rotation. All of Lufthansa’s new services will take affect from the end of March.
