Lufthansa Cargo sees March decrease

Lufthansa’s revenue cargo tonne-kilometres fell by 6.0 per cent in March 2015 year on year, but cargo load factor fell by only 4.8 per cent, according to the German carrier in its latest advice to investors.
However, the total number of flights was reduced by almost 11 per cent compared with the same month in 2014. Operations were affected by a four-day pilots’ strike which affected passenger flights.
