Chapman Freeborn and Lufthansa Cargo in unique alliance

GLOBAL charter broker Chapman Freeborn Airchartering (CFA) has secured a unique strategic cooperation agreement with Lufthansa Cargo.
It means that CFA will handle Lufthansa Cargo’s third-party chartering requirements – allowing the German airline to focus on marketing charter capacity on its own fleet of 18 MD-11Fs.
The agreement will give Lufthansa Cargo’s international sales force and client base access to the full range of charter aircraft through Chapman Freeborn’s global network of 35 offices – from helicopters and light aircraft for time-critical freight, up to giant An-225 aircraft for heavy and outsize cargo lift requirements.
CFA’s clients will benefit from enhanced access to Lufthansa Cargo’s freighter fleet, but will maintain its position of neutrality in the marketplace and continue to work in partnership with other cargo aircraft suppliers worldwide.
“We will continue offering customers flexible and high-value charter solutions in the future,” emphasises Dr Andreas Otto, Lufthansa board member responsible for product and sales.
“With the newly adapted structure, we are leaner and more focused, and can offer our own aircraft even easier and faster. Moreover, with Chapman Freeborn, the world’s leading aircraft charter specialist, we have gained a new and strong partner,” he adds.
Russi Batliwala, chief executive of CFA, underlines: “Our joint customers will benefit from this cooperation and can be sure of finding the right charter solution, anytime.”
