Lufthansa Cargo brings Eurowings’ belly capacities to market
Network will be expanded to include attractive long-haul flights from Cologne/Bonn (CGN)
Beginning with the summer timetable (27 March), Lufthansa Cargo will market the belly capacities of Eurowings’ long-haul flights. This will allow Europe's leading cargo carrier to expand their network to include more destinations for their customers directly from Cologne/Bonn (CGN). This expansion will include routes to the Caribbean (Varadero, Cancun, Dominican Republic) and Thailand (Phuket, Bangkok).
With Eurowings, Lufthansa is establishing a secondary brand which will also offer intercontinental flights from Europe. Eurowings is already the leading point-to-point airline in its home markets Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium. Eurowings is the third passenger airline whose belly capacities are marketed by Lufthansa Cargo. The other two services previously available to customers were the Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines cargo holds. In addition, Lufthansa Cargo operates 17 freighters.
“By integrating Eurowings’ belly capacities, the services we provide our customers become all the more attractive”, says Dr Alexis von Hoensbroech, Board Member of Lufthansa Cargo with responsibility for Product & Sales. “Eurowings’ growing network is an ideal complement to our previous connections.”
And Oliver Wagner, CEO of Eurowings, extols the benefits of the partnership: “Lufthansa Cargo is the leading cargo airline in Europe and has extensive experience in marketing the belly capacities of passenger airlines. This collaboration will help us make optimum use of the cargo holds on our long-haul jets.”
