Delta extends ground handling contract in Germany
LUG aircargo handling has added Delta Air Lines to its customer portfolio at Frankfurt airport. The airline, which serves Frankfurt daily with a mix of A330 (photo) and B767 from its hubs in Atlanta, Detroit and New York, has been a customer in Munich for more than five years.
LUG's service quality, infrastructure and high level of process automation match the airline's wide range of premium products, including pharma and valuables. The USA continue to be an important export market for German industry, especially in the automotive, machinery, and pharmaceuticals sector, despite the current political turbulences.
In addition, Germany remains the second biggest market for US goods in Europe - after the UK. Thus, LUG expects a considerable increase in throughput at its terminal in the CargoCity South in 2020. (ah)
