FMG, the Munich Airport operating company, and Lufthansa Cargo AG have signed a memorandum of understanding in which both parties reaffirm their resolve to ‘work together to take Munich Airport to the top of the rankings among its competitors in the European cargo segments.’ Core elements of this partnership for strategic growth are joint development, design and utilization as well as expansion of the freight facilities at Munich Airport. A key element in the cooperation is the regular integration of Munich into the cargo flight network of Lufthansa or its partner companies. Lufthansa’s passenger flights have already been carrying large quantities of co-loaded freight for many years. A team of experts from FMG and Lufthansa Cargo will begin working together in the fall of this year on the systematic development of the freight business.
