Cargolux expands in China with Shenzhen frequency

By Damian Brett

Cargolux has added Shenzhen to its network as it looks to strengthen its presence in China.

The freighter operator said the weekly frequency is routed Luxembourg-Bangkok-Shenzhen before returning westbound to Luxembourg via Bangkok with an additional stopover in Budapest.

Shenzhen is Cargolux’s sixth destination in mainland China.

“Shenzhen is China’s fourth busiest and the world’s 24th busiest cargo airport,” the carrier said. “The weekly scheduled all-cargo flight will further strengthen Cargolux’s footprint in the area.”

Domenico Ceci, Cargolux executive vice president sales and marketing, added: “Shenzhen is an important commercial gateway and this new frequency will allow us to better connect with customers in the region. This additional service between Europe and China will also offer seamless main-deck capacity between these two commercial centers.”

Cargolux said the inaugural flight marks the beginning of a regular service between Luxembourg and Shenzhen but the history between the Chinese airport and Cargolux goes back several decades; in November 1992, Cargolux was the first foreign airline, cargo or passenger, to land at Shenzhen airport.
