IAG Cargo B787 targets India pharma

IAG CARGO, the all-cargo arm of British Airways and Iberia, is to capitalise on India’s booming pharmaceuticals and healthcare market by introducing a passenger B787 on its service between London-Heathrow, Hyderabad and Chennai.
The aircraft has been optimised for bellyhold with air conditioning in the forward hold, making it ideal for shipping temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products, says a statement.
IAG’s Hyderabad route was formerly served with a B767.
Alan Dorling, global head of pharmaceuticals and life sciences at IAG Cargo, comments: “The pharma market has been one of the major Indian success stories of the past decade. Our Constant Climate (premium) product provides a hugely beneficial service to businesses operating out of this market, helping them to get their medications to market fit for use. 
IAG Cargo is offering more capacity and more flight frequencies from India to London than ever before and this is set only to increase.”
The news follows the increase in flight frequencies to Hyderabad from six a week to daily in October last year.
