Recovery happening says Lufthansa Cargo
05 / 03 / 2015
THE AIR cargo market continues to show signs of a recovery.
Benefiting from this development, Lufthansa Cargo flew with more tonnage in its aircraft in the first three months of 2014.
“Thanks to a disciplined capacity management, we saw an increase in capacity sales to nearly 72 per cent – an exceptional result compared to the rest of the market,” says a spokesperson.
Lufthansa Cargo’s capacity management system is flexible and demand-driven, he adds.
“There are noticeable, albeit still mild, signs of a market recovery,” says Karl Ulrich Garnadt, the cargo airline’s chief executive.
For this reason the carrier has been only gradually increasing its capacity.
“But I trust that we will be able to strengthen our market position with new B777 freighters and an attractive, global network in the course of the year,” points out Garnadt.
