Cargolux Airlines has transported 230 tons of artwork from the United States to Basel, Switzerland ahead of the Art Basel Fair 2019. The priceless commodities, totaling 104 pallets, were spread out over 8 flights, 3 originating from Los Angeles and 5 from New York. Upon arrival in Luxembourg, the precious cargo was loaded on board 31 trucks for the final leg of the journey. The shipment was handled by the airline in coordination with its forwarding partners Masterpiece, Dietl, and Hasenkamp.
Christian Theis, Global Product Manager for CV precious explains: “We are thrilled to have been approached for this important and invaluable transport.

Requests for sensitive shipments like this one reflect our customers’ trust in our service offering.”
Jordan Starr-Bochicchio, Manager, Art Fair Services at Masterpiece International highlights: “We were very happy to have received all the attention necessary to execute such a large undertaking smoothly. It was clear that Cargolux took this very seriously, and committed the necessary resources and time required to make sure that everything happened as planned, at both JFK and LUX. We look forward to the next opportunity to work with your team on a project of this scale.”
This position is echoed by both Allison Fulgieri, Art Fair Services Manager Dietl International who says: “It was a pleasure working with the entire Cargolux team”; and Dr. Thomas Schneider from Hasenkamp’s Fine Art division who explains: “Hasenkamp is proud to have found a longstanding partner in Cargolux for the safe handling and transport of artwork to Basel. We are looking forward to deepen our fruitful cooperation in the future.”
