Finnair joins IAG Cargo’s partner programme

Finnair Cargo is to join IAG Cargo’s Partner Plus enhanced interline cooperation programme.
Partners in the scheme enjoy confirmed bookings and higher priority for loading with IAG Cargo, the freight arm of British Airways and Iberia.
Other members of the scheme are Qatar Airways, Japan Airlines, the Avianca group and American Airlines.
Customers will gain access to markets in South and North America as well as Africa, taking advantage of IAG’s connections via London Heathrow and Madrid.
For IAG Cargo the attraction includes Finnair’s strategic destinations in north east Asia. Finnair’s chief commercial officer, Juha Järvinen, commented: “This closer cooperation with IAG Cargo will provide our customers better access to many markets beyond our own network.
"This is an innovative way to grow reach and one that we believe will prove mutually beneficial to IAG Cargo and ourselves.”
• Finavia Corp is to renovate Helsinki Airport’s main runway during the summer as part of a €900m development programme to strengthen the Finnish airport’s position as a major northern European hub.
The work will take place between May and early August, but is not expected to affect traffic significantly and all wide-body and high-volume routes will operate as normal.
