AeroLogic expands network
14 / 01 / 2010
AEROLOGIC, the joint venture cargo airline of DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo, is expanding its network, following delivery of two additional aircraft last month. The company is now introducing new daily flights from Leipzig to Hong Kong, four of them non-stop, and weekend flights from Frankfurt to Atlanta and Chicago during the current winter schedule.Ken Allen, chief executive officer of DHL Express, said: “AeroLogic’s new routes offer excellent opportunities for DHL Express. Trade between Europe and Asia remained at a high level during the recent crisis, indicating a structural demand in both regions for the other’s products and commodities.”Carsten Spohr, chief executive officer of Lufthansa Cargo, added: “With destinations in North America we can now further expand our dense network to the United States. Especially on weekends we see a high demand for capacity from and to our hubs in Atlanta and Chicago. With the Boeing 777 the Lufthansa Cargo Group can now offer its customers three different freighter types: the MD-11 of Lufthansa Cargo, the Boeing 747-400 of Jade Cargo International and AeroLogic´s Boeing 777.”AeroLogic took delivery of two additional B777F aircraft in December bringing its total to four. It is expecting delivery of four more in June, July, September and December this year.
