Lufthansa Cargo to open facility at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport

Lufthansa Cargo will open a new facility at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia to cater for standard freight, express freight and hazardous cargo.
Lufthansa said cargo arriving at the regional airport will be handled and sealed by the station and then transported in regularly scheduled trucks under a LH flight number to Frankfurt airport.
It also expects to handle exports at the facility.
Ulla Kuntze, regional director of sales and freight handling at Lufthansa Cargo, said: “Our new service in Paderborn contributes to the further acceleration of imports and exports at the business location of Eastern Westphalia.
"The environment also benefits from the new freight handling options at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport because bundled consignments can now be transported to our hub."
In Germany, Lufthansa Cargo maintains the hubs at Frankfurt and Munich. The Lufthansa Cargo station at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport will initially operate Wednesday to Friday from 06:00 to 22:00.
Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport is the regional base for holiday and business travellers from Eastern Westphalia and the adjacent regions in Hessen, North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony. Its range of services includes business and private charter traffic, in addition to scheduled and tourist flights.
