United Airlines (UAL) and Lufthansa Cargo have signed a joint venture agreement for cargo cooperation on routes between the U.S. and Europe. The pair will cooperate on capacity availability and align booking and handling processes.
The joint venture will provide 600 direct connections per week between the U.S. and Europe. Customers will be able to access the combined network through either UAL or Lufthansa’s booking channels.
The contract signing initiates the implementation phase of the joint venture project, during which the carriers will align their cargo IT systems and business processes with the goal to implement the new networks first working day later this year.
