Cargolux Expands Global Network With New Frequency to Shenzen, China
The new weekly frequency will be routed Luxembourg-Bangkok-Shenzen, while the westbound return flight will be routed to Luxembourg via Bangkok with an interim stop in Budapest.
Today (November 18, 2020), Cargolux announced the expansion of their global network with the addition of a weekly frequency to Shenzen, China. The new service will be routed Luxembourg-Bangkok-Shenzen, while the westbound return flight to Luxemburg will be routed via Bangkok with an interim stop in Budapest. China (SZX) is the carrier’s sixth destination in mainland China and the new weekly scheduled all-cargo flight will bolster Cargolux’s position as a leading cargo carrier in the region. Shenzen is the fourth busiest cargo airport in China and the 24th busiest cargo airport in the world. In Wednesday’s announcement, Cargolux’s EVP – Sales & Marketing, Domenico Ceci, said,
“Shenzhen is an important commercial gateway and this new frequency will allow us to better connect with customers in the region. This additional service between Europe and China will also offer seamless main-deck capacity between these two commercial centers.”

The Luxembourg-based carrier is Europe’s leading all-cargo airline with a modern and efficient fleet of 14 Boeing 747-8 Freighters and 16 B747-400 Freighters.
