IAG launches Hong Kong freighter service

IAG Cargo has launched its five per week freighter service between Hong Kong and London Stansted.

The service is operated on behalf of IAG Cargo by Qatar Airways using a Boeing 777F. The new service replaces freighters previously leased from Global Supply Systems.

Steve Gunning, CEO of IAG Cargo said: “In line with our wider strategy, we remain focused on providing the right capacity for the unique requirements of each route. In the case of Hong Kong, it is clear that business demand requires the extra lift provided by freighters and we are happy to be able to meet this requirement.”
