Korean Air extends partnership with LUG cargo handling

By Rachelle Harry

Korean Air Cargo will continue working with LUG aircargo handling at Frankfurt International Airport for another three years to 2022.

LUG aircargo handling has been partnered with Korean Air Cargo to handle freight for passenger and all-cargo aircraft, as well as road feeder services, for 22 years. The airline is LUG’s longest standing repeat customer.

“We are delighted that we can continue our successful partnership with Korean Air Cargo. In 2022 we will celebrate our silver anniversary,” said Patrik Tschirch, chief executive, LUG aircargo handling.

Korean Air Cargo’s network spans five continents. The airline connects Germany’s Frankfurt airport with Incheon International, the airport of South Korea’s capital Seoul. It offers seven weekly passenger flights and up to nine full freighter flights to and from Frankfurt.

Jochen Golle, traffic manager Germany and Denmark at Korean Air Cargo, commented: “Frankfurt is a very challenging, complex airport in terms of space and traffic. We value LUG aircargo handling as a professional and reliable partner that helps us to deliver a seamless, top-notch end-to-end customer experience. We are thus very happy to continue our successful partnership with LUG in Frankfurt.”

It is good to know that our service quality, our experienced personal, our IT investments, our state-of-the-art warehousing facilities, and our direct ramp access are appreciated,” said Patrik Tschirch, managing Director at LUG aircargo. “We are very proud that we can handle every type of cargo including hazmat and temperature sensitive goods. Our station in Frankfurt has been EIV Pharma certified since 2018.”
