Lufthansa Cargo and ANA Cargo have announced the expansion of their joint network between Europe and Japan by adding connected destinations in Japan with Fukuoka on the main island of Kyushu and Sapporo on the north island.

It is expected that starting from December, ANA flights from Tokyo Haneda to Fukouka Airport will be able to be booked via both partners’ booking systems. Carsten Wirths, Area Manager Europe and Africa, Lufthansa Cargo said of the agreement, “Thanks to the Joint Venture we can connect the wide European network of Lufthansa Cargo, with the direct connection of both partners to Japan and the continental de-feeder flights of ANA.”

Yukata Terao, Project Manager Cooperations, ANA Cargo added “Fukuoka and its region are important centres for the steel and automotive industries, as well as for semiconductor technology, electronics, environmental and biotechnology,” adding “These are sectors which will substantially profit from air freight.”
