New A321 freighter connection to Evenes shortens transport times to global markets.

Lufthansa Cargo’s A321 Freighter Connects Evenes in Norway with the World

  (NORWAY, 11/18/2022)

Since the beginning of November, Lufthansa Cargo has introduced weekly A321 freighter flights to Evenes Airport (EVE) in northern Norway.

A joint project between the Norwegian salmon producer and exporter Nordlaks, the freight forwarder Salmosped and Lufthansa Cargo delivers the freshest fish and seafood to global markets.

Evenes Airport is located near the city of Harstad/Narvik and is part of the province of Troms og Finnmark in Norway.

Located north of the Arctic Circle, this region is considered the gateway to the Lofoten Islands, making it a very important market for fish and seafood. The area around Evenes Airport is home to a number of salmon producers.

Both the catch of wild salmon and the income from salmon farming are growing steadily. In 2021 alone, more than one million tons of salmon were exported from Norway.

“Efficient logistics is key. Customers in Asia expect to receive fresh products of high quality. We are very satisfied that we can develop new and innovative solutions together with partners like Lufthansa Cargo and Salmosped to serve our customers”, says Eirik Nikolaisen, Chief Commercial Officer Nordlaks.

In view of the high demand for Norwegian fishery products, the direct A321 freighter connection will enable the shortest delivery times to the respective global markets.

Transporting fish and seafood as premium products requires compliance with the highest quality standards for customers as well as authorities.

Complementing the quality service promise, Lufthansa Cargo's new connection also offers a novelty of transporting fresh produce from Norway directly to the Frankfurt hub and from there on to numerous destinations within the international freighter and passenger network of Lufthansa Group Airlines.

"I am pleased about this air cargo product innovation. Thanks to the flexibility of the A321 freighter, we are able to build a customized supply chain solution for individual customers", says Ashwin Bhat, Chief Commercial Officer at Lufthansa Cargo.

"We are not only helping to ensure that fish and seafood from Norway reach their destinations around the world even faster, but also in the best and freshest quality".

Support for Norwegian fisheries through expanded transport offer for export.

"In some cases, we are cutting the delivery times from four to six days to less than 24 hours thanks to the direct connection via our Frankfurt hub", emphasizes Bhat.

Joint cooperation with Nordlaks and Salmosped delivers high-quality and fresh seafood.
