Cargolux adds Oslo call
04 / 11 / 2016
Cargolux has added a weekly Boeing 747-8 freighter service from Oslo to Luxembourg on its flight C85022 from New York.
The first flight will carry a load of salmon that is distributed to various destinations from the airline’s hub in Luxembourg.
The Oslo service caters to the airfreight needs of Norwegian shippers requiring cool chain transport.
“We are very happy to introduce Oslo to our network,” says Niek van der Weide, Cargolux EVP sales and marketing. “The response from our customers has been phenomenal and we appreciate the way they welcome us in Norway. The firm support of our clients shows that our personal attention and dedication to the needs of our partners in the market is noted and appreciated.”
Avinor Oslo Airport manager for cargo development, Martin Langaas, said: “The seafood industry requires more direct capacity to the most important markets in Asia and the US. We are continuously working to facilitate more direct capacity from Oslo Airport and through Cargolux, the seafood industry will have access to yet another desirable network to the most important overseas markets."
In addition to seafood, Cargolux also expects to carry shipments for the oil and gas industry on the US–Norway-Luxembourg service.
