IAG Cargo hopes new Paris-New York service will appeal to forwarders

IAG Cargo is hoping that its new service between Paris and New York will appeal to French freight forwarders looking for a more "local hub".
The service flies four times a week between Paris Orly and Newark New Jersey airports using a B767-200 aircraft.
While a passenger flight has been flying the route for awhile, the option to sell cargo on the service is a new addition.
IAG anticipates that fashion and textiles, perishables and spare machinery parts will make up a significant proportion of the commodity mix.
David Shepherd, Commercial Director at IAG Cargo, said: “Our new route opens direct access from mainland Europe to the North-East of the US maximising efficiencies and minimising security and handling costs for European forwarders.
"This launch demonstrates our commitment to investing in and delivering against market demand to meet the needs of global businesses, while our network and product portfolio is ideally suited to help support to the key commodity flows we expect on this route.”
