Lufthansa launches first Brussels-Chicago freighter


Lufthansa Cargo will launch twice-weekly B777F freighter service between Brussels and Chicago O’Hare on 3 April, a service aimed mainly at exporters of pharma productions in one of Europe’s leading manufacturing countries.

The flights originate from Frankfurt’s main Frankfurt hub on Mondays and Wednesdays and will return directly there from Chicago.

Lufthansa said that Brussels International’s pharma facilities were second to none with the largest amount of suitable temperature controlled warehouse space in Europe and a closed cold chain from warehouse to aircraft, thanks to its Airside Pharma Transporters.

Brussels was the first world gateway to receive the CEIV Pharma certification, it added.

Lufthansa Cargo chief executive, Ashwin Bhat said: “With our new connection, we can now offer an even more attractive network, and in particular a direct connection for particularly time-critical freight.”
