Panalpina launches new freighter service

The deal will allow Panalpina to start own-controlled regular airfreight services connecting Luxembourg with destinations such as South Africa, Dubai and Hong Kong. It will also cover the transpacific route to Huntsville, Alabama in the US, to operate alongside Panalpina’s existing transatlantic airfreight service, Dixie Jet, now entering its 20th year of service.

Atlas Air will operate the new all-cargo service using a 747-400 freighter. Rotations will include Luxembourg-Johannesburg (South Africa), Luxembourg-Dubai-Hong Kong, as well as Hong Kong-Luxembourg and Hong Kong-Huntsville. It will therefore provide direct own controlled flights covering Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and North America.
