Lufthansa will relocate its U.S. cargo executive office from New York City to Atlanta, effective April 1, citing cost savings as a primary reason for the move.

“Overhead costs will be significantly less in Atlanta than those associated with the New York location,” according to Joachim Haas, vice president cargo, USA.  Mr. Haas and his two executive staff members will share space with the Lufthansa Sales office at 3400 Peachtree Rd. NE.

The carrier currently serves Atlanta with two weekly B747 all-freighter flights to Frankfurt, Germany, in addition to daily A340 passenger flights.  For more information, please call Mel Torre in Lufthansa’s New York office at (212) 479-8801.
