[ April 2, 2019   //   ]

Lufthansa has also extended its joint venture with Cathay Pacific to include eastbound shipments from Europe to Hong Kong. The joint operation offers direct flights from Dublin, London Gatwick and Heathrow and Manchester, as well as from Lufthansa’s main Frankfurt hub and other continental gateways. There are now 280 direct weekly flights, covering 15 airports, in the joint network.

Space can be directly booked on all-cargo aircraft, passenger bellyholds and road feeder services. The two carriers also operate joint handling facilities in Hong Kong and Frankfurt and have worked closely together on IT and service enhancements since the signing of the cooperation agreement in May 2016.
