IAG Cargo resumes regular service to Rio de Janeiro

IAG Cargo has announced the return of its service from London Heathrow to Rio de Janeiro.

The cargo division of International Airlines Group (IAG) officially restarted the service on 1 December. It will now be run four times per week using a B787 widebody aircraft.

Commenting on the announcement, IAG Cargo’s regional commercial manager for Latin America Rodrigo Casal said: “We are delighted to be restarting regular services to Rio de Janeiro, presenting a positive start to the New Year for our customers. Brazil is an integral part of our global network.

“IAG Cargo will provide a fast and reliable service to two important areas of the Brazilian economy – the automotive and perishables sectors drawing on our extensive experience.”

The restarted connection is expected to be a key supply route for automotive parts into Brazil. The route is also forecast to enable the flow of electronic and e-commerce goods between Europe and South America.
