First 10,000 t of cargo to Zhengzhou
Barely five months after the start-up of airfreight services between Luxembourg and Zhengzhou (China), Cargolux celebrated the first 10,000 t of freight carried between the two hubs. The airline inaugurated flights to Zhengzhou in June 2014 and currently operates four weekly services. A fifth weekly flight was introduced yesterday (25 November 2015). The route has developed very promisingly and Cargolux plans to implement additional frequencies by the end of 2014. The airline intends to eventually grow this route to multiple daily services.
The implementation of regular air cargo services between Luxembourg and Zhengzhou is part of the dual-hub strategy centered on Luxembourg's Findel airport in Europe and on Zhengzhou's Xinzheng international airport in Asia. The dual hub strategy is a major pillar of the commercial cooperation agreement between Cargolux and its shareholder HNCA.
