Cargolux is introducing a third weekly frequency to Xiamen from 1 July 2019 in response to what it says is growing customer demand.
Cargolux has been operating into Xiamen since 2006 with two weekly flights from Luxembourg on Wednesday and Friday arriving in the Chinese city on Thursday morning and Saturday morning.
This additional China – US service cements Cargolux’s strong position in China and on transpacific trade lanes, the carrier says. This additional frequency provides the only direct freighter connection between Xiamen and the US, further broadening Cargolux’s extensive service offering.
The main imports from Europe into Xiamen comprise a vast range of classic cargo, as well as spare parts and semiconductor parts. The new frequency from Xiamen to Los Angeles will mainly support the export of clothing items and electronic goods.
Cargolux, based in Luxembourg,operates a modern and efficient fleet composed of 14 B747-8 freighters and 16 B747-400 freighters. The Cargolux worldwide network covers over 75 destinations on scheduled all-cargo flights. Cargolux is also the world’s first GDP-certified airline, as well as the world’s first ‘Lean & Green’ carrier, two significant distinctions that reflect the airline’s commitment to service excellence, it says.
