IAG Cargo has in­tro­duced two new short-haul freighter ser­vices. A new Madrid-Am­s­ter­dam freighter ser­vice, which should im­prove con­nec­tiv­ity for ship­ments be­tween Am­s­ter­dam and Latin Amer­ica, while an­other new flight from Frank­furt to Lon­don via Paris will in­crease IAG Cargo’s freighter op­er­a­tion out of Paris to twice weekly. IAG Cargo plans to op­er­ate an A300 freighter along the Madrid-Am­s­ter­dam route, which has a pay­load of up to 42 tonnes.

A300 freighters will be used on the once-a-week Frank­furt-Paris-Lon­don route

The cargo car­rier hopes to pick up time-sen­si­tive ship­ments by beat­ing the cur­rent tran­sit times via truck and by im­prov­ing the cus­tomer propo­si­tion for con­nec­tions from South Amer­ica and out of Europe. A300 freighters will also be used on the once-a-week Frank­furt-Paris-Lon­don route, which con­sol­i­dates the ex­ist­ing Frank­furt flight. Truck­ing con­nec­tions will con­nect the Frank­furt-Paris route to cargo com­ing from Lon­don Lu­ton to Heathrow and Gatwick air­ports.

“This Euro­pean ca­pac­ity ex­pan­sion comes as a di­rect re­sult of cus­tomer de­mand, and com­ple­ments up­grades made to the Mi­lan and Oporto ser­vices at the be­gin­ning of 2016,” ex­plained Camilo Gar­cia, Head-Sales, IAG Cargo.

The Madrid-Am­s­ter­dam freighter ser­vice will op­er­ate on Thurs­days and Satur­days and the Frank­furt-Paris-Lon­don ro­ta­tion will fly ev­ery Wed­nes­day.
