Lufthansa Cargo is planning to increase the number of freighters to Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as it is a promising destination. New additions to the schedule are Riyadh and Taipei. Chief Executive Ashwin Bhat said, “The market for air freight is and remains volatile, but Asia and Mexico continue to be attractive and economically strong regions for us. The cargo airline announced its plans for its winter schedule and there were opportunities that it adds freighter capacity. The additional capacity of our 17th Boeing 777F in our long-haul fleet offers opportunities to adapt the flight offering to the needs of our customers in these markets.” The latest 777F is due to arrive by the end of the year, while an additional Airbus A321 freighter will be put into action in September. The A321 will expand the carrier’s short and medium haul freighter fleet to four of the models.
