Lufthansa Cargo examines special flight schedule from 31 January for flights to and from China (mainland)

The passenger airlines of the Lufthansa Group will suspend their flights to and from China (mainland without Hong Kong). On 30 January, the scheduled services will be operated for the last time and then suspended until 9 February 2020. As a result, the bellyhold capacity of these flights will unfortunately not be available for air cargo. However, flights to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKG) will continue to operate as scheduled.

Lufthansa Cargo’s freighter flights on routes to and from China (mainland) will continue to operate as scheduled until 30 January inclusive. It is currently being examined whether the Chinese mainland can continue to be served by cargo aircraft from 31 January onwards as part of a special flight schedule. Further information on this is expected to follow in the course of 30 January. Freighter flights to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKG) will continue to operate as scheduled.

Effective immediately and until further notice, live animals (AVI) will no longer be accepted for carriage on routes to and from China (mainland). If your shipment is affected by flight cancellations or changes, it will be automatically rebooked. Information on the current status can be retrieved at any time in our eTracking system. We ask for your understanding for these measures and apologize for any inconvenience. Your local Lufthansa Cargo team will be happy to help you with any questions you may have
