Lufthansa Cargo is due to open a new station at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport on June 15. In the initial stage, consignments in the standard freight, express freight and hazardous materials categories will be handled, securely sealed and transported in regularly scheduled trucks under a LH flight number to the carrier’s Frankfurt hub.
In Germany, Lufthansa Cargo has hubs at Frankfurt and Munich, giving access to some 300 destinations worldwide. The Lufthansa Cargo station at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport will initially operate Wednesday to Friday from 0600 to 2200 local time.
Dr Marc Cezanne, CEO of Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport, said: “We see great development potential for air cargo at the airport. In Lufthansa Cargo, we have gained a first-class partner and are delighted to be part of the branch network of the world’s leading cargo airline.”
Looking forward to the opening, Ulla Kuntze, Regional Director of Sales and Freight Handling at Lufthansa Cargo commented: “We are delighted to be drawing closer to the strong, medium-sized corporate structure of the region. Our new service in Paderborn contributes to the further acceleration of imports and exports at the business location of Eastern Westphalia. The environment also benefits from the new freight handling options at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport because bundled consignments can now be transported to our hub.”
