Lufthansa Cargo expands cargo services to two airports in Mexico City

Lufthansa Cargo will permanently operate all B777 freighter flights that previously served Mexico City International Airport (MEX, also known as Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México, AICM) to Felipe Ángeles International Airport (NLU, also known as Aeropuerto Internacional Felipe Ángeles, AIFA) starting July 7, 2023. Lufthansa Cargo is thus following the requirements of a decree issued by the Mexican government, which prohibits airlines from flying freighters to Mexico City Airport (MEX) in the future for capacity reasons.

Lufthansa Cargo is offering a total of six freighter connections with Boeing 777F aircraft to and from Mexico City's second major airport, Felipe Ángeles (NLU), in the current 2023 summer flight schedule.

"As part of the necessary relocation of freighter flights to Mexico City's northeastern airport, we have successfully established both the import and export processes on site to our usual high standards in a very short time, as well as set up a fast and reliable nighttime truck transport service for freight shipments between NLU and MEX," explains Frank Nozinsky, Director, Sales & Handling, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, Central America and Caribbean at Lufthansa Cargo.

"Mexico City is a cargo destination in high demand. We are therefore very pleased to be present at both international airports together with Lufthansa Airlines and to offer our customers seamless connections for their cargo shipments here together with our warehouse partners," adds Ashwin Bhat, CEO of Lufthansa Cargo.
