Lufthansa-Cathay Form Cargo Joint Venture

Thu May 12, 2016 3:06 pm

Cathay Pacific and Lufthansa Cargo have signed agreement that will see the two airlines offer a joint network of more than 140 flights per week between Hong Kong and 13 European destinations.

The “highly integrated bilateral co-operation” is due to begin early next year and will see the two airlines work closely together on network planning, as well as sales, IT and ground handling.
Lufthansa Cargo has been looking to expand its partnerships over the last few years, opting for a “metal neutral” setup that sees revenues generated distributed from a central pot and then distributing accordingly.

LH has a ATI venture with ANA covering Japan market which I presume this agreement might be modeled after.

The 3 major alliances only cover passenger flights. Cargo businesses are not part of them.
