This year, Lufthansa Cargo will be responsible for thousands of smiling faces when it brings 1000 tons of Roses to destinations throughout Europe.

Over the next few days leading up to Valentine’s on 14 February the roses will begin arriving to Frankfurt from Kenya, Ecuador and Colombia. Upon arrival in Germany the flowers will be dispatched to florists throughout Europe. The demand for the Roses is so great that Lufthansa Cargo added additional flights to accommodate the demand.

If your Valentine happens to be in Europe and Roses are on your to-do list, there’s a very good chance that the flowers you give her were aboard a Lufthansa Cargo aircraft this week.
