Chapman Freeborn, Lufthansa Cargo sign cooperation agreement

By control on March 25, 2013

Chapman Freeborn Airchartering announced it has secured a new strategic cooperation agreement with Lufthansa Cargo.

Chapman Freeborn will handle Lufthansa Cargo’s third-party chartering requirements beginning April 1, allowing the airline to focus on marketing charter capacity on its own fleet of 18 McDonnell Douglas MD-11F aircraft.

“We will continue offering customers flexible and high-value charter solutions in the future,” Andreas Otto, Lufthansa board member product and sales, said. “With the newly adapted structure, we are leaner and more focused, and can offer our own aircraft even easier and faster.”

The agreement will give Lufthansa Cargo’s international sales force and client base access to the full range of charter aircraft through Chapman Freeborn’s network of 35 offices.

“We’re delighted to cooperate with Lufthansa Cargo as one of the world’s leading cargo carriers,” Russi Batliwala, CEO of Chapman Freeborn, said. “Our joint customers will benefit from this cooperation and can be sure of finding the right charter solution, anytime.”
