IAG con­nects Hong Kong to In­dia

Cargo Talk - - Front Page -

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.
