South Korean cargo carrier Korean Air Cargo has extended their partnership with LUG aircargo handling at Frankfurt Airport for a further three years.

The companies have collaborated with each other at the airport for 22 years, handling cargo for both passenger and all-cargo aircraft.

“We are delighted that we can continue our successful partnership with Korean Air Cargo. In 2022 we will celebrate our silver anniversary”, said Patrik Tschirch, CEO, LUG aircargo handling GmbH.

Korean Air, which provides seven weekly passenger flights and up to nine full freighter flights connecting Frankfurt with South Korea’s capital, Seoul, at Incheon International Airport, is LUG’s longest standing repeat customer.

Frankfurt is a very challenging, complex airport in terms of space and traffic,” said Jochen Golle, Traffic Manager Germany & Denmark, Korean Air Cargo.

“LUG aircargo handling matches our demands and expectations with highly trained people, modern infrastructure tailor-made for our airline, leading edge IT systems, and continually optimized processes.

“We are thus very happy to continue our successful partnership with LUG in Frankfurt. Together we provide unsurpassed premium logistics solutions tailored to the demands of customers in Germany and neighbouring countries.”
