South Korea’s cargo carrier, Korean Air Cargo - a member of the SkyTeam Cargo Alliance - has extended its cooperation with LUG aircargo handling at Frankfurt International Airport for a further three years to 2022.
LUG aircargo handling has partnered with Korean Air Cargo for 22 years, handling freight for passenger and all-cargo aircraft as well as road feeder services. The airline is LUG’s longest standing repeat customer.
"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 of LUG aircargo handling GmbH.
Korean Air Cargo’s network spans five continents. The airline connects Germany’s Frankfurt airport with Incheon International, the airport of South Korea’s capital Seoul. It offers seven weekly passenger flights and up to nine full freighter flights to/from Frankfurt.
“Frankfurt is a very challenging, complex airport in terms of space and traffic. We value LUG aircargo handling as a professional and reliable partner that helps us to deliver a seamless, top-notch end-to-end customer experience. We are thus very happy to continue our successful partnership with LUG in Frankfurt,” said Jochen Golle, Traffic Manager Germany & Denmark, Korean Air Cargo, in a press statement.
“Korean Air Cargo has been a LUG customer since May 1997. Twenty two years of successful cooperation – that is a long time in the fast-changing air cargo world. The contract extension confirms in my mind that we are pursuing the right strategy with our strong emphasis on quality. It also consolidates LUG’s position as the leading independent, family-owned GHA in Germany," said LUG aircargo handling managing director Patrik Tschirch.
He added: "We are very proud that we can handle every type of cargo including hazmat and temperature sensitive goods. Since 2018 our station in Frankfurt is CEIV Pharma certified."
