Cathay Pacific Airways and Lufthansa Cargo Sign Joint Network Agreement

Lufthansa Cargo and Cathay Pacific Airways have signed a business agreement to provide a joint network of routes between Hong Kong and Europe. The joint network will cover more than 140 direct flights per week between Hong Kong and 13 European destinations. As a result of joining forces, customers will gain access to unique flexibility with more flights to choose from and a combination of feeder and direct flights. The cooperation will also focus on service enhancements. For example, customers will be able to access the entire joint network via the booking systems of both partners. Joint handling, initially at the Hong Kong and Frankfurt hubs, will also make things easier for customers since there will be just one point for export drop off and import delivery. Both partners plan to transport the first shipments under the framework of the cooperation from early next year - initially from Hong Kong to Europe. The ability to also book eastbound shipments from Europe to Hong Kong will then follow in the course of the year. The joint activities will be carried out in full compliance with all applicable laws, including the competition rules of the European Union and Hong Kong.
