DFW AIRPORT, Texas, March 19, 2013 -- Cargolux Airlines International S.A., one of Europe's largest cargo airlines, tomorrow will launch its first freighter flight connecting Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to Luxembourg. The twice-weekly operation will be operated with Cargolux's new 747-8 freighters, offering cargo customers fast and efficient overseas cargo service.

The new service is routed from Luxembourg to Baku, Azerbaijan and then Hong Kong and on to DFW Airport. The round-the-world flight returns to Luxembourg after touching down at DFW on Wednesdays. The second weekly flight will operate on Saturdays starting March 23, and is routed via Mexico. Offering increased network reach to customers, this service expands the airline's Trans-Pacific services and meets the growing demand for electronic components and IT-related commodities from Asia to Texas.

"DFW is proud to welcome Cargolux to Texas," said Jeff Fegan , DFW Airport's Chief Executive Officer. "This is the kind of air service expansion that makes our Airport a major economic driver for the Dallas-Fort Worth region. We've worked very hard to bring Cargolux to DFW Airport, and we're confident that our Airport will become a major U.S. market for this renowned carrier."

The new Cargolux flight highlights DFW Airport's commitment to expanding its cargo service to connect the world. Cargo airlines at DFW enjoy a multitude of amenities, including two million square feet of cargo warehouse space, seven unrestricted runways, 24-hour-a-day/seven-day-a-week operations, and a prime geographic location for efficient distribution of goods across the central United States.

The expansion of cargo service often serves as a leading indicator of economic growth. Luxembourg has one of the world's most robust economies with the largest GDP per capita. Because the Dallas/Fort Worth region represents one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States, the DFW region remains a key strategic market for expansion.

"DFW's commitment to growing its cargo portfolio is paying off with service such as this new Cargolux flight to Luxembourg," said Luis Perez , Vice President for Air Service Development at DFW. "Our mission is to bring more air service to the citizens of Dallas/Fort Worth, which brings more economic opportunity, jobs and growth to our region."

In the last decade, DFW's cargo service has more than tripled. More than 664-thousand metric tonnes of cargo shipped from DFW in 2012, with almost half of that total shipped by international cargo carriers. DFW currently serves as home to a total of 18 dedicated cargo airlines.
