On Wednesday (November 16, 2022), Lufthansa Cargo announced the launch of Airbus A321 Freighter service between Frankfurt (FRA) and Evenes Airport (EVE) in northern Norway, which has been operating since early November. A joint project between salmon producer and exporter Nordlaks, the freight forwarder Salmosped, and Lufthansa Cargo, the route delivers the freshest fish and seafood to global markets. Evenes Airport is located near Harstad/Narvik and is part of the Province of Troms og Finnmark in Norway. The Arctic Circle region is considered the gateway to the Lofoten Islands, making it an important fish and seafood market.

In Wednesday’s announcement, Lufthansa Cargo’s Chief Commercial Officer, Ashwin Bhat, said,

“I am pleased about this air cargo product innovation. Thanks to the flexibility of the A321 freighter, we are able to build a customized supply chain solution for individual customers. We are not only helping to ensure that fish and seafood from Norway reach their destinations around the world even faster, but also in the best and freshest quality. In some cases, we are cutting the delivery times from four to six days to less than 24 hours thanks to the direct connection via our Frankfurt hub.”

Also commenting on the logistics collaboration, Nordlaks’ Chief Commercial Officer, Eirik Nikolaisen, said,

“Efficient logistics is key. Customers in Asia expect to receive fresh products of high quality. We are very satisfied that we can develop new and innovative solutions together with partners like Lufthansa Cargo and Salmosped to serve our customers.”

With revenue of €3.8 billion and 7.2 billion freight ton kilometers in 2021, Lufthansa Cargo is one of the world’s leading air freight companies, employing approximately 4,200 team members worldwide. The cargo carrier serves around 300 destinations in over 100 countries with a dedicated fleet of freighters, as well as belly-hold cargo capacity of passenger aircraft operated by Lufthansa German Airlines, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings Discover and SunExpress.

In 2021, the company reached important milestones such as a fleet modernization to an all Boeing 777F widebody fleet, and the introduction of CO2 neutral freight transport for all customers. In 2022, the airline will equip their fleet of dedicated freighters with Sharkskin technology to reduce drag, and expand their SAF program to further reduce CO2 emissions. The company also operates an extensive road feeder service network. Lufthansa Cargo is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Deutsche Lufthansa AG and is the Group’s logistics specialist.
