Cargolux’s Vietnam fashion freighter service

WITH a lot of fashion industry production now locating to Vietnam, freighter operator Cargolux has launched new B747-8F services into emerging industrial centre Ho Chi Minh’s Nhat international airport.
The airport is the latest in Asia to have been certified to receive the airline’s advanced freighter.
Ho Chi Minh City is the largest commercial city in Vietnam, with a fast-growing fashion manufacturing industry.
With its weekly Ho Chi Minh City flight upgraded to B747-8F services, all Cargolux destinations in Asia and the Pacific area have now been certified for the airline’s larger, more efficient freighter type.
“A lot of production is moving to Vietnam and the country shows great determination in boosting its trade by approving its airports for B747-8F operations,” says Richard Forson, Cargolux’s interim president and chief executive.
“We are happy to now be able to offer advanced B747-8 freighter services to all Cargolux destinations in Vietnam, a market that is of significant commercial importance to us,” he adds.
