Lufthansa promises a fairer deal for global aid efforts

[ February 14, 2013   //   ]

Lufthansa Cargo has signed a deal with the German Aktion Deutschland Hilft (ADH) coalition of relief organisations to provide guaranteed capacity during humanitarian disasters anywhere in the world. The agreement aims to take away the uncertainty and, often, high costs that often hamper relief operations in many parts of the world.

Lufthansa cargo has also put the ADH logo on one of its MD11 freighters, unveiled at a ceremony at Frankfurt airport on 13 February, where Lufthansa Cargo chairman and CEO Karl Ulrich Garnadt said: “Fast transport of relief aid is essential. Through cooperation with ADH, we can in future ensure that assistance arrives faster and more effectively.”

ADH chairman Rudi Frick added: “It helps immensely if aid organisations and logistics operators work smoothly together to ensure their services are instantly available, whenever needs dictate.”

Garnadt pledged that the carrier would offer the aid group “capacity at cost price” with full transparency. He described the MD11 as “a flying ambassador” for ADH, which would act as a beacon for the aid organisation.
