Cargolux Airlines International has added Shannon to its network, with the first flight touching down on Thursday 9 June.

The inaugural flight came from Seattle and the weekly service will operate on a Los Angeles – Seattle – Shannon – Luxembourg route, adding capacity in the British Isles.

Cargolux has been operating ad hoc flights into Shannon for several years.

Domenico Ceci, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing at Cargolux, says, “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.”
