Europe’s largest all-cargo airline, Cargolux Airlines International S.A., has announced the introduction of a third weekly frequency to Xiamen as of 1 July, 2019 to meet growing customer demand.
The new service, CV9721 is operated every Monday morning, departing Luxembourg at 8:10 a.m. with arrival in Xiamen on Tuesday at 4:40 a.m. The return flight, CV9731, is scheduled to leave Xiamen at 6:15 a.m. and is routed through Los Angeles before returning to Luxembourg where it lands at 6:15 a.m. (All times provided are local).
Cargolux has been operating into Xiamen since 2006 with two weekly flights from Luxembourg on Wednesday and Friday arriving in the Chinese city on Thursday morning and Saturday morning.
This additional China – USA service cements Cargolux’s strong position in China and on transpacific trade lanes. This additional frequency provides the only direct freighter connection between Xiamen and the USA, further broadening Cargolux’s extensive service offering.
The main imports from Europe into Xiamen comprise a vast range of classic cargo as well as spare parts and semiconductor parts. The new frequency from Xiamen to Los Angeles will mainly support the export of clothing items and electronic goods.
With its fleet of nose-door equipped Boeing 747 freighters, Cargolux offers the opportunity to carry a wide range of commodities on all its trade lanes. The airline’s portfolio of tailored transport solutions and its expert staff guarantee high standards are upheld when dealing with customers’ specialized requirements. Cargolux is the world’s first GDP-certified airline, as well as the world’s first ‘Lean & Green’ carrier, two significant distinctions that reflect the airline’s commitment to service excellence.
