Lufthansa’s cargo arm has transported around 1,500 tonnes of roses for Valentine’s Day this year, most originating in Kenya or South America. These countries have the ideal climate for cultivating these flowers all year round, offering the best growing conditions.

Lufthansa Cargo connects the flower growing countries with the Frankfurt hub several times a week. And special charter flights are arranged in addition to the scheduled connections at this time each year in order to serve the high demand for Valentine’s Day. The cargo airline has developed the special Fresh/td product specifically for the transportation of perishable goods such as flowers and food.
