Lufthansa Cargo has announced it is launching a freighter connection from Munich to Istanbul for the first time from July 6.

An A321 freighter will connect the city airports twice a week, complementing the existing belly network from Munich.

The new freighter connection is planned for every Saturday and Sunday, with Lufthansa Cargo stating that customers can now already book their shipments.

Ashwin Bhat, chief executive of Lufthansa Cargo, said: “We are looking forward to offering our customers this new freighter connection, which makes our global network even more attractive.

“For our southern German customers in particular, Munich Airport offers ideal conditions for the fast and reliable transportation of air freight, which ultimately also enables global business from another important European airport.

“With the launch of our cargo operations out of Munich, we are laying the foundation for aligning our network even more closely with the needs of our customers in the future and continuing to manage it flexibly.”

Jost Lammers, chief executive of Flughafen München GmbH, said: “The launch of regular cargo flights to Istanbul by Lufthansa Cargo is very good news for the Bavarian export industry and for Munich Airport.

“Above-average growth rates in the current year have already shown that Munich Airport is also becoming increasingly important as a hub airport for cargo.

“The attractiveness of Munich Airport as a cargo location will now receive a further boost through Lufthansa Cargo‘s commitment.”
