Munich Airport and Lufthansa Cargo working together
13 / 07 / 2008
FMG, the Munich Airport operating company, and Lufthansa Cargo AG, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding in which both parties reaffirm their resolve to “work together to take Munich Airport to the top of the rankings among its competitors in the European cargo segments”.
Core elements of this partnership for strategic growth are joint development, design and utilisation, as well as expansion of the freight facilities at Munich Airport. A key element in the cooperation is the regular integration of Munich into the cargo flight network of Lufthansa or its partner companies. Lufthansa’s passenger flights have already been carrying large quantities of coloaded freight for many years.
A team of experts from FMG and Lufthansa Cargo will begin working together in the autumn of this year on the systematic development of the freight business.
