Lufthansa Cargo and ANA Cargo Joint venture starts in Belgium
Daily direct flights with ANA from Brussels to Tokyo, as of 25 October
Once the winter flight schedule launches, customers in Belgium can send their cargo directly from Brussels to Japan for the first time. As of 25 October, All Nippon Airways (ANA) is offering a daily connection between Brussels and Tokyo Narita with a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner. A 8.50 pm takeoff from the Belgium capital enables arrival in Narita at 4.10 pm the following day. The return flight takes off at 11.15 am from Narita, landing in Brussels the same day at 3.15 pm (all local times).
As such, customers in Belgium will also benefit from the collaboration between ANA Cargo and Lufthansa Cargo on routes between Europe and Japan in the form of more and faster connections, more capacity, flexibility and time savings. In total, customers in Germany, France, Austria, Great Britain and Belgium have over 90 weekly direct flights between Europe and Japan to choose from, as well as selected feeder and de-feeder flights. The direct flights connect eleven airports such as Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, London Heathrow, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Vienna and Brussels, as well as Tokyo Narita, Tokyo Haneda, Nagoya and Osaka. At eight stations the partners have co-located their handling or work together with the same groundhandler.
