IAG Cargo to resume London to China services

IAG Cargo is restarting services between London Heathrow and Beijing and Shanghai after almost two years.

From 23 April, IAG Cargo customers will be able to export and import goods on a daily rotation between Heathrow and Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

Services between Heathrow and Beijing Daxing Airport will resume on 3 June, with four flights each week.

During the early pandemic period, IAG Cargo offered customers cargo-only services and charters between the UK and China to support the delivery of essential cargo.

From January 2020 and summer of 2021, IAG Cargo operated 700 charters and 160 cargo-only flights to China, with the last cargo-only service between Heathrow and Shanghai in June 2021, and last cargo-only service to Beijing in July 2021.

“Europe – China is one of the world’s most important trade lanes, and a vital part of our network; we’re so pleased to be reopening the route after a long pause,” said IAG Cargo’s chief sales and marketing officer Camilo Garcia Cervera.

“With high-tech items, e-commerce, clothing and automotive driving both imports and exports, we can help customers to stay better connected with their trading partners across the world. Customers using our services also benefit from our wider network, that continues to grow and spans across six continents.”
