Lufty reaches record high

[ January 12, 2012   //   ]

Lufthansa Cargo handled an all-time record tonnage in 2011, with around 1.9 million tonnes of freight and mail in 2011 – an increase of 5% on the year-earlier level. The airline raised capacity over the twelve months by 8.6%, mainly due to the integration, of Austrian Airlines and the Lufthansa-DHL AeroLogic joint venture’s expansion to eight Boeing 777 freighters. Strong export demand in Germany boosted market share, offsetting an increasingly bleak economic climate in the Asian market.
