Lufthansa Cargo adds ‘myAirCargo’ service

Lufthansa Cargo, the freight operation of German’s flag-carrier, has launched its new offering for individual customers sending large goods by air.
The myAirCargo service can be booked online, is door-to-door and includes all customs formalities being taken care of by the carrier.
It is expected to be particularly useful for sporting equipment or for bulky valuables such as antiques.
Peter Gerber, chief executive of Lufthansa Cargo, said that the new offering allows individuals to “benefit directly from our many years of air cargo experience. By doing so, we are occupying an innovative niche in the market between postal services and forwarders.
“Book air cargo quickly and easily online, at first hand – only we can do that”, he added.
myAirCargo is available now between most European countries and the US, while Lufthansa Cargo expects to roll out the product to other markets in coming months.
myAirCargo is not the only new service Lufthansa Cargo is rolling out. Last month (July), the freight carrier announced that it will begin offering a new low-cost way of moving cargo from September this year.
td.Basic will be a price-sensitive alternative for those customers happy to accept a shipment time of three days more (on average) than Lufthansa Cargo’s traditional td.Pro standard product.
Users of td.Basic will have to book online, with cost savings on the new product said by the airline to be derived from “simpler background processes”.
