Lufthansa Cargo shifts Asian hub to Krasnoyarsk


As of June, Lufthansa Cargo AG is relocating on schedule, its technical stopover point for its
cargo flights from Astana (TSE), Kazakhstan, to Krasnoyarsk (KJA) in Russia. The first flight via
the new route will be made on 1st June from Tokyo via Krasnoyarsk to Frankfurt. Later, the flights
to and from China will be made via Siberia. On completion of the relocation, freight to the
previous location of Astana will only be transported aboard flights of Lufthansa Passage.
Lufthansa Cargo, however, will continue to have a presence in Kazakhstan with its cargo flights
to Almaty.
“With the relocation of our operations, we are realizing a long-planned optimization of the
routing”, said Carsten Spohr, Chairman of the Executive Board of Lufthansa Cargo. "The new
stopover in Krasnoyarsk shortens the flying time to the Far East by an average of about 12
minutes per flight and thus makes a valuable contribution to the further reduction of costs”. As a
result, thanks to the new routing Lufthansa Cargo will use around 2,000 tons of kerosene less
per annum.
Lufthansa Cargo has enjoyed considerable support from the region and the airport in
Krasnoyarsk, during recent months. For example, within one year the instrument landing system
of Krasnoyarsk Airport has been upgraded from CAT I to CAT II. With this modernization of the
instrument landing system, the airport can also be used without interruption even in bad
weather. Thus, one of the most important requirements of Lufthansa Cargo with respect to stable
flight operations to and from Siberia was fulfilled on schedule.
As of August 2009, Lufthansa Cargo will use the new hub in Krasnoyarsk with 22 weekly flights
to and from Europe.
