Vietnam to become a permanent fixture of the Lufthansa Cargo network
Freighter service to and from Ho Chi Minh City has been successfully started.
Vietnam is to become a permanent fixture of the Lufthansa Cargo route network as part of the new winter schedule. Following a successful test phase over the summer months, the cargo airline will be flying a Boeing 777F weekly to Ho Chi Minh City (SGN).
The freighter will be departing every Thursday from Frankfurt (FRA), heading for Ho Chi Minh City via Mumbai (BOM), and will finally terminate at Hong Kong (HKG). Frank Naeve, Vice President Asia-Pacific at Lufthansa Cargo since 1 August, is pleased about the stable demand coming from Vietnam: "We are proud to have built up excellent relationships with our clients in Vietnam, which we will now be further cultivating with the fixed freighter connection. Using our flexible network management we will be able to effectively meet demand. We are constantly working on making our network in the Asia-Pacific region even more attractive for our customers."
