China Southern joins IAG Cargo partnership

China Southern Airlines has joined IAG Cargo’s Partner Plus programme allowing IAG Cargo customers to book space on China Southern Airlines aircraft to destinations including Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Urumqi.

The airline becomes the sixth to sign up to the Partner Plus programme, following Qatar Airways, Japan Airlines, the Avianca group, American Airlines, and Finnair.

IAG Cargo customers can track shipments from origin to destination via track and trace functionality covering every leg of the journey. Under the programme, the carrier guarantees that freight, in the event of an operational offload, will be recovered within 48hrs.

Steve Gunning, CEO of IAG Cargo, said: “Our Partner Plus programme has allowed us to grow our network reach in an asset light way. Today’s deal will provide our customers with new destinations in some of the Asia’s most important trading hubs.”
