IAG Cargo is benefiting from a 40% increase in flights between Spain to the US since March from its airline sister companies, Iberia and LEVEL.
Iberia’s expanded network includes regular connectivity between Madrid and Los Angeles, Boston, and Chicago, with flights to New York and Miami departing twice a day. The services will be operated on Iberia A330 aircraft.
Meanwhile, LEVEL has resumed flights between Boston and Barcelona using Airbus A330-200 aircraft.
Following the expansion, IAG Cargo is now able to offer 120 weekly connections – a 40% increase in connections since March.
The newly launched schedule offers A330-200 widebody aircraft, with the capacity to hold up to 20 tonnes of cargo.
“Increased capacity between Spain and the USA facilitates the movement of popular commodities including fish from the Canary Islands flown via Madrid for North American consumers, asparagus from Los Angeles to Spain and wider Europe, as well much needed biomedical supplies, automotive parts, aircraft parts, textile, and fashion accessories,” IAG Cargo said.
Idoia Martinez, IAG Cargo regional commercial manager for Spain and Portugal, added: “It is fantastic to be able to provide our customers with increased flights from Spain to the US.
“It is such an important trade route, not only offering vital connections for our customers in Europe and the USA, but it also adds to our expansive widebody network across the globe.”
