All Nippon Airways, Lufthansa Cargo Commence Airfreight Joint Venture

All Nippon Airways and Lufthansa Cargo AG have begun an air cargo joint venture on Japan-Europe routes that they applied for in September. The first shipment was sent by forwarder Schenker-Seino Co. Ltd. It was booked via Lufthansa Cargo and was transported by ANA on flight number NH 277 from Tokyo to London.

The joint venture provides a larger and faster 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 use the services of both airlines at a single location.

Akira Okada, ANA Cargo CEO, said: “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.”

Peter Gerber, Lufthansa Cargo Chairman and CEO, said: “We are looking forward to intensifying our cooperation with ANA, which sets a further milestone in bringing the economies of Japan and Europe closer together.”
