IAG Cargo boosts services to Latin America

IAG Cargo has increased services to Colombia and Argentina from Madrid, while offering daily capacity between Sao Paolo and Buenos Aires.

The International Airlines Group (IAG) cargo division now operates 14 flights per week between Madrid and Bogota (up on the previous 10), while the three flights per week schedule into Cali has been maintained.

IAG Cargo has also increased services between Madrid and Buenos Aires from eight to ten flights per week, and services between London Heathrow and Mexico City have risen to seven per week (up from the previous five).

The new service between Sao Paolo and Buenos Aires will enable the flow of goods between the two cities, IAG Cargo said, along with the opportunity to fly freight across its network onto busy transatlantic trade lanes. All services utilise the group’s widebody aircraft.

The business now services 17 destinations in Latin America from Madrid, London and Barcelona and offers capacity to nearly every destination in Latin America which it operated pre-pandemic with over 250 weekly services in total.

IAG Cargo noted that the service had proved particularly valuable to the automotive and manufacturing industries, which utilise air freight between the regions, and to the medical sector. The extra capacity also benefits perishable exporters seeking to transport fresh produce into Europe and the UK, an important period in the run up to Valentine’s Day.

“These additional flights will provide a welcome boost to businesses trading between Europe, UK and Latin America,” said IAG Cargo’s regional commercial manager for Latin America Rodrigo Casal. “Additionally, we are delighted to be able to offer regular widebody capacity between Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires, on flights that feed into London and Madrid. Our global network allows customers a gateway to the world, connecting automotive freight to assembly plants in Europe, or perishables onto the supermarket shelves in the UK.”
