IAG Cargo, the cargo division of International Airlines Group (IAG), has announced the opening of two new routes. On the 26th March, it will be operating a new route to Aruba (Oranjestad) via Antigua and Guyana (Georgetown) via St Lucia on the 27th March.
Both services will operate twice a week on a British Airways Boeing 777-200 widebody aircraft. Perishables, local produce and oil equipment are some of the exports that this capacity will serve.
“We’re delighted to be able to provide more capacity to the Americas, enabling our customers to reach further destinations through our key hubs. The movement of cargo between Europe and Americas represents an important trade route, and with our specialist products such as Critical and Constant Climate we’re able to offer a speedy service and ensure that goods stay in perfect condition every step of the journey,” Rodrigo Casal, Regional Commercial Manager for Latin America at IAG Cargo, said.
IAG Cargo continues to expand its Americas capacity with over 250 weekly services between European and Latin American airports, with IAG Cargo now offering a direct three-times-weekly service between London and Trinidad from the 26th March, which was previously reached via St Lucia.
