Lufthansa Cargo adds freighter service to Vietnam


Vietnam is to become a permanent fixture of the Lufthansa Cargo network after the carrier added a freighter service to and from Ho Chi Minh City.

Following a successful test phase over the summer months, the cargo airline will be flying a Boeing 777 Freighter weekly to Ho Chi Minh City.

The freighter will be departing every Thursday from Frankfurt, heading for Ho Chi Minh City via Mumbai in India, and will finally terminate in Hong Kong.

Lufthansa Cargo’s vice president in Asia Pacific, Frank Naeve, says he is pleased about the stable demand coming from Vietnam: “We are proud to have built up excellent relationships with our clients in Vietnam, which we will now be further cultivating with the fixed freighter connection.

“Using our flexible network management we will be able to effectively meet demand. We are constantly working on making our network in the Asia Pacific region even more attractive for our customers.”
