LUG adds Emirates to customer portfolio in Frankfurt-Main

[ July 21, 2017   //   ]

LUG aircargo handling GmbH has announced that it has agreed on a service contract with Emirates, effective October 2, 2017. Emirates (EK) operates passenger aircraft (A380 and B777) three times a day between Frankfurt-Main and Dubai. In addition, Emirates offers eight all-cargo flights with B777F per week. LUG will handle the belly cargo as well as road feeder services (RFS) and cargo from freighters for Emirates SkyCargo, the cargo division of Emirates.

Emirates flies to Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, und Munich in Germany. It offers scheduled services to over 150 destinations worldwide. Emirates SkyCargo’s freighter fleet operates to close to 50 airports.

“We are delighted that we have been able to win such a demanding customer as Emirates SkyCargo. The bar is raised very high for ground handling competence as well as innovation in technology and handling. We are currently expanding our Health Care Centre (HCC) in our terminal in the Cargo City South. In addition, we can offer a first class service for food and flowers as shareholder in the Perishable Centre Frankfurt. This has, no doubt, contributed to the success of our tender offer“, says Patrik Tschirch, Managing Director & CEO, LUG aircargo handling GmbH. “Adding Emirates SkyCargo to our customer portfolio boosts our business growth. We expect an additional handling volume of some 6,000 t per month.“

“We have opted for LUG aircargo handling as they are a professional and reliable GHA that will help us fulfil our customers’ expectations and satisfy our own ambitions in terms of excellent service, an absolutely safe operation, and continued responsiveness to the evolving demands of our customers,” says Michael Laschet, Emirates Cargo Manager Germany.
