JAL and LOT announce new cargo partnership

LOT Cargo and JAL Cargo have signed a new co-operation agreement covering the Polish airline’s  Japan-Poland operation.
The general sales agreement starts in January and will see JAL Cargo selling cargo space on LOT’s Dreamliners operating between Warsaw and Tokyo.
LOT’s service on the route flies three times a week with as much as 65 cubic metres of cargo space and 15 tons of payload available on each flight.
JAL Cargo will also handle the cargo carried on LOT’s planes once it reaches Tokyo’s Narita airport.
LOT cargo director Mariusz Kuczek said: “According to today’s figures, Japan’s export to Poland equals €1.1bn, while imports exceed €1.5bn per year.
“It is a huge potential that we are dealing with. By commencing cooperation with JAL Cargo, we intend to provide our customers with the highest standard of air cargo services. We do expect that the supply chains of our numerous logistics partners will be optimised as well.”
JAL executive officer cargo and mail Tsuyoshi Yamamura added: “As JAL does not have its own network from Japan to Poland nor central and eastern Europe, it is also our pleasure that we can offer LOT’s high quality non-stop service from Narita to Warsaw, along with LOT’s massive network to central and eastern Europe."
The two airlines said they hoped to expand the agreement and offer cargo space on other routes they serve.
