Cargolux adds Ashgabat to its network

July 01, 2016: Cargolux Airlines adds Ashgabat, Turkmenistan to its network and this becomes airline’s latest destination in Central Asia which, besides Turkmenbashi, also include Baku, Novosibirsk, Almaty and Tbilisi.

The once-weekly service complements Cargolux’s existing flights to Turkmenbashi that were started exactly one year ago.

Since then, Cargolux has expanded its Turkmenistan services to eight per week. In July, Cargolux will further boost its frequencies to 11 per week.

Ashgabat has invested in the development of a new airport that is scheduled to open in September and a modern cargo center that becomes operational on July 4. The city will also host the Asian Games in 2017.

With the additional flight, Cargolux increases its connections from Turkmenistan to the airline’s worldwide network of 90 destinations.

Cargolux cooperates with Turkmenistan Airlines to enhance the number of cargo destinations both carriers can offer to their customers. Cargolux can now also better serve surrounding markets such as Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.

The maiden flight to Ashgabat was part of the “LX-VCM World Tour”. On the occasion of the 45th anniversary of Cargolux, a 747-8F was painted in a special livery.
