Lufthansa Cargo and All Nippon Airways (ANA) will extend their successful cooperation on 12 July. As of that date, Lufthansa’s entire European feeder network will be combined with the direct flights of both partners. As a result, customers from all European countries will benefit from access to the joint venture’s strong network. This has only been possible for customers in Germany, Austria, France, Great Britain and Belgium to date.

“We are now offering our customers throughout all of Europe even greater flexibility and speed. This is another important step with ANA”, said Peter  Gerber, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Lufthansa Cargo. “Our customers also gain time through joint handling at numerous stations.”

The joint network includes more than 90 weekly direct connections between Frankfurt, Munich, Düsseldorf, London Heathrow, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Brussels and Vienna in Europe and Tokyo Narita, Tokyo Haneda, Nagoya and Osaka in Japan. Shipments can also be sent via Haneda to the industrial hub in Fukuoka in the south of Japan. The feeder and direct flights can be booked via the usual booking channels of both partners.
