Cargolux adds Jakarta to its network

Cargolux has introduced a route which connects Luxembourg to the Indonesian capital. The flight operates weekly, leaving Luxembourg on Sunday and arriving in Jakarta on Monday. The rotation then continues through Hong Kong and Ashgabat before returning to Luxembourg on Tuesday morning.

According to Cargolux, they are the only cargo carrier to offer a direct main deck connection between Europe and Indonesia. This position, coupled with the company’s fleet of 747 freighters, allows the company to cater for a wide variety of commodities, as well as off-size freight such as oil and gas industry equipment, machinery, spare parts or aircraft engines.

The main cargo transiting through the area will include apparel, footwear, pharmaceuticals perishables and live animals.

Domenico Ceci, Cargolux’s Executive Vice-President Sales & Marketing said: “This new frequency contributes to enhancing our service offering in the South-East Asian region and better connecting us with our customers in the area. Jakarta is an influential commercial centre, and we look forward to building local partnerships and furthering the city’s establishment as a global business gateway.”

The weekly scheduled all-cargo flight will expand Cargolux’s footprint in the Asia-Pacific region. Customers in Jakarta will have the opportunity to benefit from the airline’s road feeder services from Luxembourg hub to various European destinations.

Cargolux has been doing business in Jakarta for over 23 years, mostly through partnerships and interline agreements so far. The airline operated 4 charter flights, 2 inbound and 2 outbound, to Jakarta in 2018 ahead of the Asian Games.
