Lufthansa Cargo is laying on new MD-11 freighter services to Guadalajara in Mexico from 2
March 2013. The cargo airline will then be connect ing the metropolis in the Mexican highlands with the Frankfurt hub. The twice-weekly flights from Frankfurt are routed via Chicago and Mexico City and will be operated on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The return flights (also with a stopover in the USA), are on Thursdays and Sundays.
Guadalajara has evolved into a major business centre, especially for high-tech companies in the electronics and information technology sector. Over the past ten years, more than 600 companies from the high-tech sector have established bases in the region. The automotive industry has also found the region around Guadalajara an ideal location for production plants. Agriculture is a key factor in the export business in the million-plus City, 500 kilometers west of Mexico City.
“Industry in the Guadalajara region has grown tremendously in the past few years,“ noted Lufthansa Cargo Board Member Product & Sales Dr. Andreas Otto. “With the new services, we
are strengthening our presence in the Mexican growth market and making our global route net-
work even more attractive to our customers.”
