Andreas Otto, Lufthansa Cargo (LC) executive board member, expects the company to take two to three years to fully recover from the global recession.
Speaking at the Cargo Network Services conference in Miami, Otto said while there has been a recent upturn in business, LC will keep two MD-11 freighters in the desert. Two previously parked aircraft will return to the network by late summer.
Acknowledging that the recent closure of Europe's airspace had drawn attention to the role of air cargo in global commerce, Otto suggested a European-based CNS could act as an effective government lobby to ensure the importance of the industry is maintained.
