Frankfurt, 7 June, 2016
Lufthansa Cargo is due to open a new station at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport on 15 June. The logistics subsidiary of Lufthansa is working closely with the airport. In the initial stage, consignments in the standard freight, express freight and hazardous materials categories will be professionally handled, safely sealed and transported in regularly scheduled trucks under an LH flight number to the Frankfurt hub.
“We are delighted to be drawing closer to the strong, medium-sized corporate structure of the region. Our new service in Paderborn contributes to the further acceleration of imports and exports at the business location of Eastern Westphalia. The environment also benefits from the new freight handling options at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport because bundled consignments can now be transported to our hub,” says Ulla Kuntze, Regional Director of Sales and Freight Handling at Lufthansa Cargo.
“We see great development potential for air cargo at the airport. In Lufthansa Cargo, we have gained a first-class partner and are delighted to be part of the branch network of the world's leading cargo airline,” says Dr. Marc Cezanne, CEO of Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport.
In Germany, Lufthansa Cargo maintains the hubs at Frankfurt and Munich, giving access to some 300 destinations worldwide. The Lufthansa Cargo station at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport will initially operate Wednesday to Friday from 06:00 to 22:00.
