Lufthansa Cargo launches freighter flights from Munich

Lufthansa Cargo is all set to expand its regional freighter network in July with the additional flights from Munich Airport for the first time, says release. The German cargo carrier said the flights will start on July 6, utilising its Airbus A321 freighters to connect Munich with Istanbul twice a week. Customers can already start booking flights on the service which will operate on Saturdays and Sundays with the flight numbers LH8350/LH8351 and LH8346/LH8347. Ashwin Baht, Chief Executive, Lufthansa Cargo said, “For our southern German customers in particular, Munich Airport offers ideal conditions for the fast and reliable transportation of airfreight, which ultimately also enables global business from another important European airport. With the launch of our cargo operations out of Munich, we are laying the foundation for aligning our network even more closely with the needs of our customers in the future and continuing to manage it flexibly.”
