Lufthansa to market holiday airline cargo space

[ July 26, 2021   //   ]

Lufthansa Cargo is now marketing the freight capacities of the new long-haul flights of its Eurowings Discover subsidiary. Initially, these will be routes from Frankfurt to the Dominican Republic (Punta Cana), Kenya (Mombasa), Namibia (Windhoek) and Tanzania (Zanzibar).

Eurowings Discover is the new tourist airline of the Lufthansa Group and a wholly owned subsidiary of Deutsche Lufthansa AG. The first Eurowings Discover aircraft loaded with cargo took off from its home airport of Frankfurt am Main on 24 July for its inaugural flight to Mombasa with onward service to Zanzibar.

From October, Eurowings Discover is planning further flights to Las Vegas and Mauritius while the 2021 winter flight schedule will include Bridgetown, Montego Bay and Varadero will be added followed in November by Cancún as well as to medium-haul destinations such as the Canary Islands, Egypt and Morocco.

Lufthansa Cargo chief commercial officer, Ashwin Bhat, said the extra frequencies would complement existing connections “and help our customers in times of still scarce capacity.”
