ANA and Lufthansa Cargo launch joint venture

All Nippon Airways (ANA), a Japanese airline, and Lufthansa Cargo AG, announced that they have launched an air cargo joint venture on Japan-Europe routes.

The joint venture offers customers a larger network with more direct flights, more destinations and more frequencies. By moving under one roof at major stations, such as the airports Narita and Nagoya in Japan and Dusseldorf and Frankfurt in Germany, customers can employ the services of both airlines at a single location.

Akira Okada, ANA Cargo Chief Executive Officer said, “I am delighted that we have implemented the world’s first cargo joint venture of this kind. This partnership will improve the level of service offered to customers by generating a greater selection of routings and a wider range of service options. With the joint venture, both airlines will boost their position in global competition and make even better use of their aircraft capacities.”
