Lufthansa Cargo is very pleased about the positive development of its new route to Ashgabat (ASB). The Turkmen capital was recently added to Lufthansa Cargos freighter network. Since 29 March a Boeing B-777F operated by AeroLogic, a joint-venture of DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo, is serving ASB every Sunday. 

“This direct connection between Germany and Turkmenistan underlines the close business ties between the two countries. We meanwhile see a largely growing portfolio of customers and origins worldwide and are very pleased about the development during the first ten weeks of operation. The capacity is mainly used for products in the healthcare, oil and gas as well as perishable and live animal sector”, said Christian Becker, Regional Director Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States at Lufthansa Cargo.

The new freighter service with flight number LH 8082 was inaugurated with the start of the summer flight schedule, connecting Frankfurt, Ashgabat and Hong Kong with a loading capacity of over 100 tons.
