Lufthansa Cargo expands cargo services to two airports in Mexico City

Lufthansa Cargo expands cargo services to two airports in Mexico City

Beginning on July 7, 2023, Lufthansa Cargo will continuously operate all B777 cargo flights that formerly connected Felipe Angeles International Airport to Mexico City International Airport. Thus, Lufthansa Cargo is abiding with a Mexican government regulation that forbids airlines from operating freighters to Mexico City Airport (MEX) in the future due to capacity concerns.

Beginning in the first week of July, freight airlines will run flights to the cutting-edge Felipe Angels Airport (NLU), which is located 45 km northeast of Mexico City. The airport, which has been operating since last year, is situated on the site of a former military airstrip and is encircled by a continuously expanding infrastructure.

In the current summer flight schedule, Lufthansa Cargo offers six freighter connections with Boeing 777F aircraft to and from Mexico City’s second-largest airport, Felipe Angeles. The freighters depart from Frankfurt at midday on Tuesdays through Sundays and arrive at Los Angeles International Airport in the early hours of the morning. The freighter trips will be available to purchase beginning June 16. Lufthansa Cargo may be found at Terminal Logistics Recinto Fiscalizado Almacén #12 CR293 at Felipe Ángeles Airport.

Mexico City Airport is still served by three weekly Airbus A350 connections from Munich as well as seven weekly direct Boeing 747-8 flights from Frankfurt. With the use of truck shuttle services, Lufthansa Cargo makes sure that the transit time for cargo shipments between the two Mexican capital airports is quick and effective.
