Lufthansa Cargo has launched ‘myAirCargo’, giving private customers the chance to move bulky items internationally by air.
The logistics subsidiary of Lufthansa says it will organise the transportation from door-to-door, taking care of customs formalities along the way, and will be useful for goods such as sizeable souvenirs from exotic holidays. The service is only available online and can be booked in five steps, with the price of the shipment and expected customs fees displayed directly and can be settled by credit card.
Lufthansa Cargo chief executive officer, Peter Gerber says: “We are excited that private clients can now benefit directly from our many years of air cargo experience. By doing so, we are occupying an innovative niche in the market between postal services and forwarders. Book air cargo quickly and easily online, at first hand – only we can do that.”
The service is available between most European countries and the USA and will be introduced across Lufthansa’s network in the coming months.
