A familiar scenario in London: As in previous years at the Cargo Airline of the Year Awards, Lufthansa Cargo has again been voted Europe’s best cargo carrier. The customers in the airfreight industry, who were questioned in the ballot, thereby confirmed their high regard for Germany’s biggest freight airline.
The British Air Cargo Media Group has conferred the prestigious award for 30 years. “This renewed distinction bears out the constant high quality which we offer to our customers,’ noted Thomas Egenolf, Director Italy, Malta, UK & Ireland, who accepted the award at the presentation ceremony in London. He added: ‘We will do our utmost to continue pursuing that objective. We are systematically investing further in our products, our network and, above all, our quality in order to make our services even more attractive to customers.”
Carsten Wirths, Lufthansa Cargo Vice President Europe & Africa, attributed the reason for the accolade especially to the airline’s policy of staying right up close to customers in the air cargo business. ‘With more than 110 stations across Europe, we lay on the best connections from all relevant airfreight markets. Together with intensive and professional support, we furnish shippers from every industry with the assurance that their urgent freight is delivered safe, intact and on time at its destination.’
