Overall cargo volumes at Luxembourg Airport (LUX) during 2019 decreased by 6.7 per cent year-on-year to a total of 893,090 tonnes handled exclusively by LuxairCARGO.

By the end of last year, LuxairCARGO completed the GDP recertification for the in-house Pharma Center. Luxembourg Airport was the first air cargo platform in 2014 in which all stakeholders (Carrier, Ground Handler, Forwarder & Trucking Company) became GDP certified. This is now the 2nd recertification after gaining the initial certificate in 2013.

During 2019 the digitalisation of the ramp activity has been concluded and as result all processes have become paperless and are monitored live. The aim of the project was to get more visibility and structure to the processes. The accurate data is now also interfaced for invoicing purposes eliminating manual collection and verification of information, LuxairCARGO says.

On the AVI side, the handler’s Special Services Team registered an increase of 7.0 per cent of horses transiting through our upgraded life animal station. The upgrade includes a new ungulate handling station as well as a cubicle for the accompanying grooms.
