Korean Air Cargo signs 3-year contract extension with LUG aircargo handling

Korean Air Cargo has extended the cooperation with LUG aircargo handling at Frankfurt International Airport for a further three years to 2022.

LUG aircargo handling has partnered Korean Air Cargo for some 22 years now, 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, LUG aircargo handling.

Korean Air Cargo’s network embraces five continents. The airline connects Germany’s top international airport, Frankfurt, 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.

“Operational and innovative excellence are the foundation stones of Korean Air’s high reputation worldwide. 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.

“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. Together we provide unsurpassed premium logistics solutions tailored to the demands of customers in Germany and neighboring countries,” said Jochen Golle, traffic manager Germany & Denmark, Korean Air Cargo.

 
“Korean Air Cargo has been a LUG customer since May 1997. 22 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.

“It is good to know that our service quality, our experienced personal, our IT investments, our state-of-the-art warehousing facilities, and our direct ramp access are appreciated. 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,” added Tschirch.
