IAG Cargo will launch a direct service from the UK to Islamabad, Pakistan in June next year.
The service will run year-round, three times a week from London Heathrow and customers will have access to up to 15 tonnes of lift per flight.
Sales director Camilo Garcia said: “Islamabad is home to thriving technology, textiles and healthcare industries and the new route will provide easy access to customers from the UK and beyond. This addition builds on our strong entry points into Southeast Asia, supporting these industries by carrying products such as apparel and medical equipment.”
Islamabad is one of three additional routes to be introduced by IAG Cargo next year: the others are Pittsburgh in the US and Osaka in Japan.
