LUFTHANSA, DHL WORLDWIDE EXPRESS PLAN JOINT NETWORK
Lufthansa Cargo AG and DHL Worldwide Express will jointly use the intra-European overnight express network of DHL, effective April 1.
In this summer’s schedule, Lufthansa Cargo will offer 13 destinations on the European DHL network. A joint planning team of the two companies is coordinating flight schedules and implementing efforts to improve plane utilization. The companies said they plan to centralize their operations at their express hubs in Cologne.
Lufthansa Cargo has transported its fastest time-definite product, td.Flash, on four Boeing 737 “Quick Change” passenger planes. DHL will help Lufthansa Cargo to replace this Boeing 737QC network with the increased capacities on Boeing 757F freighters, which it will receive this year.
