IAG connects Hong Kong to India
With an additional freighter service into Hong Kong starting October 31, IAG Cargo offers customers six freighter flights in the Asia Pacific per week.
“Hong Kong is an incredibly important trade centre, not least for the garment and consumer electronics sectors, and we have seen good growth from the region to all destinations,” Steve Gunning, Managing Director, IAG Cargo said.
The additional flight will depart Hong Kong airport on Saturday mornings. The flight to Hong Kong will stop in Frankfurt and will return to London via New Delhi.
“The stop in India is a huge benefit for our customers as the Hong Kong-Delhi route is vital for a range of businesses,” informed Gunning.
With this additional freighter, IAG Cargo now provides the Hong Kong market with around 700 tonnes of freighter lift a week in addition to passenger aircraft, which can provide about 200 tonnes per week in the belly hold.
