Cargolux International Airlines will start a weekly service on Tuesdays from Oslo to Luxembourg on 1 November 2016 on its flight from New York in the US.
The first flight will carry a load of salmon that is distributed to various Cargolux destinations from the airline’s hub at Luxembourg Airport.
Cargolux also expects to carry shipments for the oil and gas industry on the US – Norway – Luxembourg service.
It will run a Boeing 747-8 Freighter, and will cater to the airfreight needs of Norwegian shippers who are set to benefit from Cargolux’s long-standing expertise in cool chain transports and the airline’s dedicated CV Fresh product offering.
Cargolux executive vice president, Niek van der Weide says: ““The response from our customers has been phenomenal and we appreciate the way they welcome us in Norway. The firm support of our clients shows that our personal attention and dedication to the needs of our partners in the market is noted and appreciated.”
Avinor manager of cargo development, Martin Langaas says: “The seafood industry requires more direct capacity to the most important markets in Asia and the US. We are continuously working to facilitate more direct capacity from Oslo Airport and through Cargolux, the seafood industry will have access to yet another desirable network to the most important overseas markets.”
