Lufthansa Cargo serves Stavanger with cargo-only flights for the first time
Cargo airline improves link of the Norwegian oil hub with the global network
The Norwegian city of Stavanger is a new destination on Lufthansa Cargo's freighter schedule. As of 8 November, one of the cargo airline's Boeing 777F will link Houston with Stavanger every Saturday, providing a direct freighter service between two of the most important centres of the global oil and gas industry.
"Both in Houston and Stavanger time-critical technology for offshore and deep sea oilfield drilling is produced", explains Alexander Kohnen, Director Sales & Handling Nordic and Baltic at Lufthansa Cargo. "In most cases, speed is of the essence. With our direct cargo connection, time-critical express consignments will reach almost every destination in the world within 24 hours."
In total, Lufthansa Cargo will serve more than 300 destinations across 100 countries with the coming winter schedule. 45 stations will be flown to by the freight fleet.
