IAG Cargo is to launch a new direct flight between Madrid and San Francisco. The new flight will be introduced from Summer 2018.
The flight will take place three times per week, offering capacity of up to 14 tonnes per flight.
“San Francisco has a well-established technology hub, with computer and electronic products being California’s top export category in 2016,” said David Shepherd, commercial director.
“California is also a vital market for exports, contributing to over $2 trillion of U.S. goods and services exports last year.
“We anticipate that the new route will offer a welcome boost to tech and SME exporters transporting their goods into Europe and across our wider network, with the new flight increasing the number of routes out of our Spanish gateway to 54.”
