IAG in freight sharing deal with Finnair

IAG Cargo reached an agreement with Finnair to share freight capacity on a twice-weekly A300-600 freighter service operated by DHL between London Luton and Helsinki.

The freighter will supplement Finnairs’ seven and IAG Cargos’ two daily narrow-body services between London Heathrow and Helsinki.

Steve Gunning, CEO of IAG Cargo, said: “We have once again expanded our network through an asset-light solution and provided our customers with access to an even greater range of destinations. With Finnair’s excellent reach into Asia and our strength in the Americas, this deal will open up new markets for our customers while supporting the responsible management of capacity on our network.”
