LUG to handle Etihad Cargo in Frankfurt and Munich

LUG aircargo handling, a freight handler operating at Germany’s Frankfurt and Munich airports, has begun processing Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Cargo’s freight at Munich Airport.
It will also begin handling Etihad Cargo’s freight at Frankfurt Airport from next month (March). 
Etihad flies passenger aircraft twice a day to both German airports, but it also operates full-freighter Airbus 330-200F and Boeing 777-200F aircraft to Frankfurt twice a week.
The agreement with Etihad, LUG’s first Middle Eastern carrier customer, covers the complete range of cargo handling services, including full-freighter, belly cargo and road feeder services, for Etihad as well as for its airline partners such as airberlin.
Patrik Tschirch, LUG aircargo handling’s managing director and chief executive, commented: “Key success factors for our co-operation will be a strong customer focus as well as our innovative and consistently efficient operational processes.
“We expect a freight throughput of some 50,000 tonnes per year. This gives the company a strong push,” he added.
LUG aircargo handling is a member of the Dettmer Group. It handled over 300,000 tons of cargo in 2016.
It operates from 33,000 sq m covered warehousing space with direct ramp access for all types of cargo, including dangerous goods, at Frankfurt Airport, and from some 3,300 sq m at Munich Airport.
