The twice-weekly operation will be operated with Cargolux’s new 747-8 freighters.
The new service is routed from Luxembourg to Baku, Azerbaijan, then Hong Kong, and finally DFW Airport. The flight returns to Luxembourg after arriving at DFW on Wednesdays. The second weekly flight will operate on Saturdays, starting March 23, and is routed via Mexico.
The service meets the growing demand for electronic components and information technology-related commodities from Asia to Texas, the European cargo airline said in a written statement.
