One Question

Jude Winstanley, Head of network, Alliances & Compliance for IAG Cargo answers:
“IAG thinks there was a structural change in the market. It’s a fact that airlines are building for passenger growth and cargo demand simply can’t keep up. Going forward, there will be more belly capacity than is needed. As an industry we can self-regulate; we can’t do anything about passenger tons coming – but we can take out freighters.”
