November 29 - Cargolux has signed a cooperation agreement with Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA) that allows both partners access to each other's capacity through code-share and space swap agreements.
Cargolux now has access to NCA's flights from Frankfurt Hahn to Tokyo Narita, while NCA has access to Cargolux's flights from Luxembourg to Narita.
Following the agreement, Cargolux plans to operate a weekly flight from Luxembourg to Tokyo Narita. Cargolux Italia will stop its operations to Narita but will maintain its services to Osaka (Kansai).
In addition to this opportunity to develop its activity at Narita, Cargolux also intends to further develop its operations through Komatsu, on Japan's west coast.
The code-share operation is planned to start with the summer season 2018, and, according to Cargolux, both airlines consider the agreement to be a first step towards a potentially deeper cooperation.
