Chapman Freeborn has signed an agreement to handle Lufthansa Cargo's third-party chartering requirements.
The deal opens Lufthansa's clients to Chapman's charter aircraft and global network, while Chapman's customers will benefit from access to Lufthansa's freighter fleet.
Representatives from both companies signed the deal in Frankfurt last week. Lufthansa's Andreas Otto emphasized this move does not mean that Lufthansa is getting out of the charter business.
“We will continue offering customers flexible and high-value charter solutions in the future,” he said. “With the newly adapted structure, we are leaner and more focused, and can offer our own aircraft even easier and faster. Moreover, with Chapman Freeborn, the world’s leading aircraft charter specialist, we have gained a new and strong partner.” - Jon Ross
