Lufthansa Cargo starts freighter service to Miami
LUFTHANSA Cargo is resuming a freighter service to Miami International Airport (MIA) ending a 25-year hiatus
LUFTHANSA Cargo is resuming a freighter service to Miami International Airport (MIA) ending a 25-year hiatus. The weekly service from Frankfurt, Germany will use Boeing 777 aircraft.
MIA handled a record of 1.9 million tonnes of international freight in 2018, thereby retaining its position as the busiest US airport in that category, reported London's Air Cargo News.
Lufthansa Cargo sales director Norbert Pahlsmeyer was quoted as saying: 'We are now adding the weekly freighter to serve additional demand for outsized and special cargo, connecting MIA to the global Lufthansa Cargo freighter network.'
MIA is currently served by four daily flights to Europe.
Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez, added: 'Our community already benefits from the daily, world-class passenger service Lufthansa provides, and we look forward to the additional economic impact its cargo service will have on our community.'
