Cargolux strengthens its Chinese presence by adding Shenzhen route
Cargolux has launched a new weekly frequency to Shenzhen, China.
September 22, 2020: Cargolux has launched a new weekly frequency to Shenzhen, China. The service is routed through Luxembourg-Bangkok-Shenzhen before returning westbound to Luxembourg via Bangkok with an additional stopover in Budapest. Shenzhen is Cargolux’s sixth destination in mainland China.
The latest addition to Cargolux’s extensive network is an opportunity for the airline to meet growing customer requirements while also exploring additional market opportunities. Shenzhen is world’s 24th busiest cargo airport. The weekly scheduled all-cargo flight will further strengthen Cargolux’s footprint in the area.
Domenico Ceci, Cargolux’s EVP sales & marketing, said, “Shenzhen is an important commercial gateway and this new frequency will allow us to better connect with customers in the region. This additional service between Europe and China will also offer seamless main-deck capacity between these two commercial centres.”
In November 1992, Cargolux was the first foreign airline, cargo or passenger, to land at Shenzhen airport.
