IAG Cargo is now offering up a Madrid to Shanghai service.
It will also increase the number of weekly London Heathrow to Shanghai flights from seven to ten this winter. The flights will be serviced by Boeing 777 aircraft – the ‘next generation’ B787-9 Dreamliner will be introduced next year.
“Our new direct route from Madrid to Shanghai will provide our customers with better connections between East Asia and Latin America and to our wider network which spans over 350 destinations,” said David Shepherd, head of commercial at IAG Cargo. “With high technology goods, pharmaceuticals and automobile parts driving both imports and exports and our additional services and larger, more cargo-friendly aircraft, we are able to offer forwarders greater flexibility and efficiency over where and when they ship their goods.”
