Lufthansa adds fourth short-haul freighter


Lufthansa Cargo has added a fourth A321 freighter to complete its fleet of short-haul freighters. With 14 pallet and container positions on the main deck and ten on the lower deck, the twin-engine aircraft has a total payload of 28 tons and has already made its first flights including where it was named ¡Hola España!.

The new winter flight schedule, which came into effect on October 29, now includes Amman and Stockholm, Sweden. The Jordanian capital is connected to Germany once a week and Stockholm Arlanda, an important hub for pharmaceutical and temperature-sensitive goods, three times a week.

Stavanger in Norway, already part of the B777F network, will now be served once a week by A321 freighters every Thursday from Frankfurt and via Copenhagen. With Copenhagen and Helsinki already being part of the A321F network, the addition of Stockholm and Stavanger completes the network’s Nordic coverage.
