Air General continues to grow in TPA and with Lufthansa. TPA joins CLT, DFW, and DEN in adding Lufthansa Cargo operations for Air General.

On September 25th, Air General had an extremely successful start up of our new Lufthansa Cargo handling operation in Tampa, FL (TPA). Thanks in large part to the countless hours of preparation that have been undertaken by Regional Field Director-South, Ken Coleman, TPA General Manager Rick McGiveney, as well as various Lufthansa experts from our CLT, DFW and DEN stations.

The A340 300 first flight arrived on time, and was welcomed into Tampa by the traditional water cannon greeting all new flights are privileged to experience.

The first outbound flight departed with a respectable cargo load of four pallets, capably built by the new Tampa team with plenty of support from our seasoned Tampa crew, some new staff, and several Lufthansa personnel for on site support.

Lufthansa will operate five flights a week into Tampa, but they do have a longer term goal to operate daily as they expand in the very popular Florida market.

Lufthansa is a key account with Air General, and we know that TPA can handle the challenge of adding an 11th airline to it’s roster!
