Frankfurt, 01 December 2015
Contemporaneously with the first anniversary of their cooperation, Lufthansa Cargo and All Nippon Airways (ANA) are kicking-off the expansion of their joint network between Europe and Japan by adding connected destinations in Japan: First Fukuoka on the main island Kyushu in south Japan, later to be followed by Sapporo on the north island.
Starting from December, ANA flights from Tokyo Haneda to Fukuoka Airport (FUK) can be booked via both partners' booking systems. “Thanks to the Joint Venture we can connect the wide European network of Lufthansa Cargo, with the direct connections of both partners to Japan and the continental de-feeder flights of ANA”, says Carsten Wirths, Area Manager Europe and Africa, Lufthansa Cargo. „Customers of both partners in Germany, France, Belgium, Great Britain and Austria will benefit.“
"Fukuoka and its region are important centres for the steel and automotive industries, as well as for semiconductor technology, electronics, environmental and biotechnology", explains Yutaka Terao, Project Manager Cooperations, ANA Cargo. "These are sectors which substantially profit from air freight."
