Cargolux Italia has opened a new route from Milan to Incheon, connecting the main gateways of Italy and South Korea twice a week.
The services started on 16 July, flying from Milan Malpensa Airport to Seoul’s Incheon International Airport on Tuesdays and Sundays.
The service operates on a Malpensa – Incheon – Zhengzhou – Malpensa route, and the main commodities on the route will include fashion items, machinery, luxury cars, pharmaceuticals and perishables.
Seoul is the fourth export destination out of Italy behind New York, Shanghai and Hong Kong, and ahead of Tokyo.
The direct connection provides opportunities to link Italy’s industrial heart with South Korea’s commercial gateway, home to the Incheon Free Economic Zone.
Fabrizio Cortese, chief executive officer of Cargolux Italia says: “We are delighted to have added Incheon to the Cargolux Italia service provision. The Korean destination was the last missing piece to complete our network with the top five Italian export destinations. We are confident that this addition will be highly beneficial to our customer-base and we look forward to developing strong partnerships in Korea.”
