Cargolux celebrates 50 years of success

Today marks a remarkable milestone for Cargolux as the all-cargo carrier celebrates its 50th anniversary. Exactly half a century ago, Luxembourg’s national carrier Luxair, Iceland's national carrier Loftleiðir, the Swedish shipping company Salén and some private investors, founded Cargolux. With a single aircraft and a handful of employees, these ambitious investors created what was to become one of the world’s leading all-cargo carriers. Since its inception, Cargolux has lived up to its now famous slogan ‘You name it, we fly it’ – the embodiment of the Cargolux spirit.
