Cargolux Airlines International S.A. welcomed its 11th B747-8 freighter. The latest addition to the airlines growing 747-8F fleet is registered LX-VCJ and named “City of Zhengzhou” in honor of Cargolux’s partnership with its Chinese shareholder HNCA and its recently established Chinese hub in Zhengzhou.
“Our new City of Zhengzhou will help us to strengthen our services between Luxembourg and the province of Henan,” says Dirk Reich, Cargolux president and CEO. “In addition to the economic, operational and environmental advantages that the aircraft brings, we can also boost our traffic and revenues in cooperation with our Chinese partners.” Cargolux plans to increase its 747-8F flights between Luxembourg and Zhengzhou to multiple daily connections.
Cargolux has another three aircraft on order and also operates 11 747-400 freighters.
