IAG’s Hong Kong service by Qatar kicks off


IAG Cargo’s new five per week freighter service between Hong Kong and London Stansted operated on behalf of IAG Cargo by Qatar Airways kicked off in early May. The service utilises B777F aircraft and will benefit customers through the high capacity lift and flexibility associated with freighters, IAG said. The new service replaces freighters previously leased by IAG from Global Supply Systems.

“This marks an important new chapter in our history,” said Steve Gunning, CEO of IAG Cargo. “In line with our wider strategy, we remain focused on providing the right capacity for the unique requirements of each route. In the case of Hong Kong, it is clear that business demand requires the extra lift provided by freighters and we are happy to be able to meet this requirement.” Each flight will deliver approximately 80 tonnes of capacity to Hong Kong businesses.
