October 14, 2014. Cargolux Airlines International S.A. today announced that it is introducing a fourth scheduled service to Zhengzhou, China.
After the successful introduction of three weekly flights earlier this year, this new service CV9742 departs from Luxembourg on Tuesdays at 10:00 pm and reaching Zhengzhou on Wednesdays at 08:40 pm before returning to Luxembourg on Thursday morning at 6:15 via Novosibirsk.
Zhengzhou is ideally located in central China with daily road feeder services to coastal cities such as Beijing and Shanghai and reaches far inland providing faster and more economical services to inland cities such as Xi'an, Wuhan, Chengdu and Chongqing.
The implementation of regular air cargo services between Luxembourg and Zhengzhou is part of the dual-hub strategy centered on Luxembourg's Findel airport in Europe and on Zhengzhou's Xinzheng International Airport in Asia. The dual hub strategy is a major pillar of the Commercial Cooperation Agreement between Cargolux and HNCA. Cargolux plans to eventually increase its 747-8F flights between Luxembourg and Zhengzhou to multiple daily connections.
