Lufthansa Cargo shrinks schedules
Given the weakening global air cargo demand, Lufthansa Cargo is adjusting its schedule to reduce its overall offering for Q2 and Q3/2019. This will allow the company to ensure profitable load factors and continued deployment of its aircraft at optimum levels into the future.
Services will be cut across the entire flight programme in line with trends in demand. Regional offices will inform their customers of the changes in good time. The adjustment to the flights offered is also in keeping with the planned rollover from the MD-11F freighter, two of which will be withdrawn from service by the end of the year, to the B777F.
Peter Gerber, CEO and chairman of the executive board: "We will continue to closely observe market developments and to flexibly adapt our supply in line with demand." (ah)
