Lufthansa Cargo is further expanding airfreight capacity for shippers and forwarders at the start of the winter flight schedules on 26 October 2008. The cargo carrier’s customers will have a greater choice of destinations and frequencies especially on routes to North America, the carrier said. Aside from an additional MD-11 freighter connection on Fridays to New York (JFK), a further flight from Frankfurt will be added to Chicago on Wednesdays.

Additional direct freighter connections weekly will be available on Thursdays to Seoul as well as on Saturdays to Bombay and Hong Kong. Lufthansa Cargo began flying to Toronto ex Frankfurt in September – with a return flight to Frankfurt via Atlanta.

Lufthansa Cargo is also offering cargo capacity to destinations in North America on Lufthansa passenger flights. An Airbus A340-600 will be serving Orlando/Florida ex Frankfurt twice-weekly in the winter timetable. Six flights weekly will be available to Miami from Dusseldorf.

Moreover, Lufthansa non-stop passenger flights with an Airbus A340-600 will be operating daily in the winter timetable to Cape Town. The Lufthansa passenger business is also laying on an extra flight from Frankfurt to Buenos Aires in the winter flight schedules as well as two additional connections weekly from Munich to Bombay.
