Lufthansa Cargo to launch new freighter service to Osaka

Lufthansa Cargo has increased its freighter services to Japan by two weekly freighters to Osaka (KIX). The additional flights complement the already existing daily freighter services from and to Tokyo-Narita as well as the Lufthansa passenger flights to Osaka-Kansai, Tokyo-Haneda, and Nagoya

The new route is operated from Frankfurt via Novosibirsk to Osaka on Wednesdays and Fridays, and adds to a total of 80 weekly flights into and out of the country – including the belly capacity on Lufthansa passenger aircraft and the carriers cooperation capacity with ANA Cargo. The first flight from Osaka took off on 18th January at 11:36pm (local time) with 90 tons of cargo on board.  

“These new flights to Osaka are strengthening our position in Japan. It is a further investment into the very important Japanese airfreight market“, says Frank Naeve, Vice President Asia-Pacific at Lufthansa Cargo.
“We are proud to have long-standing connections with customers in the Japanese air cargo industry since 1969. Our aim is to build on this and expand into the future”, says Alexis von Hoensbroech, Chief Commercial Officer at Lufthansa Cargo.
