Cargolux announced that it will introduce a new air cargo service to Dallas/Fort Worth on 20 March. The twice-weekly operation is flown with Cargolux’s new 747-8 freighters, offering customers the fastest and most economical connection possible.
The inaugural flight, as well as all following flights on Wednesdays, are routed via Baku and Hong Kong and return to Luxembourg after touching down in Dallas/Fort Worth. Offering increased network reach to customers, this service expands the airline’s Trans-Pacific services with a new product and satisfies the demand for electronic components and IT-related commodities from Asia to Texas. Cargolux’s three other Trans-Pacific flights from Asia connect to Chicago and New York.
The second weekly service to Dallas operates on Saturdays and is routed via Mexico, consequently allowing Cargolux to serve this destination five times a week. The return flight connects Dallas directly to Luxembourg. This second service starts on 23 March 2013.
