Chapman Freeborn has secured a new strategic cooperation agreement with Lufthansa Cargo which will be effective from April 1 2013.

With this agreement, Chapman will handle Lufthansa Cargo’s third-party chartering requirements – allowing the German airline to focus on marketing charter capacity on its own fleet of 18 McDonnell Douglas MD-11F aircraft.

The agreement will give Lufthansa Cargo’s international sales force and client base access to the full range of charter aircraft through Chapman Freeborn’s global network of 35 offices – from helicopters and light aircraft for time-critical freight, up to giant Antonov AN-225 aircraft for heavy and outsize cargo requirements.

Chapman Freeborn clients will benefit from the enhanced access to Lufthansa Cargo’s freighter fleet – but maintain its position of neutrality in the marketplace and continue to work in partnership with cargo airline suppliers worldwide.
