    Goals / Remit

    The Cargolux Group comprises Cargolux Airlines International S.A., based in Luxembourg, and its majority owned subsidiary Cargolux Italia, based at Milan Malpensa airport, Italy. Cargolux operates scheduled flights on a network spanning all continents, using a fleet of Boeing 747 aircraft. Cargolux Airlines started operating in 1970 and is now among the largest international cargo carriers worldwide. Cargolux Italia started operations in 2009. Cargolux has more than 85 offices in over 50 countries.

    Cargolux transports typically high-value cargo flown on behalf of industrial exporters and importers. These include, but are not limited to, machinery, consumer goods, part-finished goods and spare parts, perishable goods, pharmaceuticals and live animals.

    Cargolux directly employs 2400 persons, of which 1700 persons are based in Luxembourg. Indirectly, Cargolux employs a much larger number of persons as its activities generate employment among a wide range of service providers.
