Lufthansa Cargo to market Brussels Airlines’ cargo space

Lufthansa Cargo will market the cargo capacities of Lufthansa Group subsidiary Brussels Airlines from Sept. 1, joining Lufthansa (mainline), Austrian Airlines, Eurowings and Sun Express.

Lufthansa Cargo said Brussels Airlines—which flies to 17 destinations in west, central and east Africa—fits ideally into its existing network.

Brussels Airlines CEO Christina Foerster said Lufthansa Cargo has “a lot of experience in marketing the cargo capacities of passenger airlines. This cooperation will help us to make even better use of the freight capacities of our fleet. And we, as the European Africa specialist, can add new destinations to Lufthansa Cargo’s offering.”

The move will increase the belly capacity by 10 Airbus A330-200/300s of Lufthansa Cargo, which also operates 17 freighters and uses capacities from Aerologic, a joint venture of Lufthansa Cargo and DHL Express.
