Lufthansa and ANA expand agreement

December 2 - One year after its original launch, Lufthansa Cargo and All Nippon Airways Cargo (ANA) are expanding their network joint venture between Europe and Japan by adding Fukuoka and Sapporo as destinations.

Starting from December, ANA flights from Tokyo Haneda to Fukuoka Airport (FUK) can be booked via both partners' booking systems.

Carsten Wirths, Lufthansa Cargo area manager Europe and Africa, said: "Thanks to the joint venture we can connect the wide European network of Lufthansa Cargo, with the direct connections of both partners to Japan and the continental de-feeder flights of ANA.

"Customers of both partners in Germany, France, Belgium, Great Britain and Austria will benefit."

Yukata Terao, project manager cooperations at ANA Cargo, said: "Fukuoka and its region are important centres for the steel and automotive industries, as well as for semiconductor technology, electronics, environmental and biotechnology.

"These are sectors which substantially profit from air freight."
