Cargolux Starts New Service to Shannon
Cargolux has officially announced the start of a new service to Shannon, as the latest addition to its global network. The inaugural flight landed in Shannon on the 9th of June direct from Seattle. The weekly frequency is routed Los Angeles-Seattle-Shannon-Luxembourg, bolstering the airline’s transatlantic services. The introduction of Shannon is an opportunity for Cargolux to meet growing customer demand and expand its presence in Ireland and the UK.

This additional gateway in Europe offers commercial opportunities for the airline’s overseas customers.
Commenting on the new service, the Executive Vice-President of Sales & Marketing at Cargolux, Domenico Ceci said, “This new frequency is a welcome development for Cargolux to connect with its global customers and expand services in the area. Shannon is a thriving commercial gateway, and we look forward to building our partnerships in the region.”
