Lufthansa Cargo has increased its freighter services to Japan and added two weekly freighters to Osaka, Japan (KIX). The additional flights complement the already existing daily freighter from and to Tokyo-Narita as well as the Lufthansa passenger flights to Osaka-Kansai, Tokyo-Haneda, and Nagoya.
The new route is operated from Frankfurt via Novosibirsk to Osaka on Wednesdays and Fridays, and adds to a total of 80 weekly flights into and out of the country – including the belly capacity on Lufthansa passenger aircraft and the carriers cooperation capacity with ANA Cargo. The first flight from Osaka took off on January 18 at 11:36 pm (local time) with 90 tons of cargo on board.
