Why ANA Cargo and Lufthansa Cargo are joining forces.
The concept of cooperation is probably as old as humanity itself. The power of working together is what has allowed us to succeed as a species. And as old as the concept is, it still has potential today. So what makes cooperation successful? It takes a well-balanced mixture of differences and similarities. Ideally, when joining forces, seemingly contrasting strengths will add up to something new and exciting. Synergies will emerge. Portfolios will complement each other. Some might argue that the most impressive and successful kind of cooperation is one that ends up creating something that is greater than the sum of its parts.
A promise to our customers: this one is for you.
When the idea of cooperation between ANA Cargo and Lufthansa Cargo was first conceived, we were convinced that it would bring great benefits to our customers. By cooperating, we would end up having so much more to offer on flights between Japan and Europe: Direct access to more destinations. Faster and more frequent connections. Increased capacity. And, last but not least: more simplicity and efficiency for you thanks to shared standard processes and one-stop shopping for pricing and bookings.
Lufthansa Cargo, Europe's largest air cargo carrier, and Cathay Pacific Cargo, one of the leading air cargo carriers in Asia, entered a joint business agreement in May 2016. More direct connections, greater flexibility and time savings combined with service enhancements – these are just some of the benefits customers will enjoy. Both airlines will work closely together on network planning, as well as sales, IT and ground handling. This will bring Hong Kong, the world’s busiest air cargo hub, closer to Europe, strengthening one of the world’s great trade lanes.
United Cargo® and Lufthansa Cargo are coming together to raise the standard of shipping between the U.S. and Europe, and give you more options and streamlined services. Shipping freight between the U.S. and Europe (in both directions) has never been easier.
