IAG Cargo relaunches Barcelona–New York service

IAG Cargo will offer capacity on services to and from Barcelona and New York City, as passenger operations gradually pick up following disruption caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

Cargo will be carried in the bellyhold of passenger flights operated by LEVEL — a long-haul, low-cost airline in the IAG Group — using Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

John Cheetham, chief commercial officer at IAG Cargo, commented: “We are delighted that LEVEL has been able to resume operations and get passengers back in the skies. Increased passenger flights mean more options for IAG Cargo customers. We look forward to supplying these important markets with much needed air cargo capacity.”

Lucía Adrover, chief commercial officer, added: “We at LEVEL are pleased to announce that we are restarting our operations for passengers and cargo from Barcelona, contributing to IAG Cargo’s extensive freight traffic network made possible thanks to the group’s synergies. This is good news not only for the sector but also for the long-haul connectivity of the city of Barcelona.”

IAG Cargo said that since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has operated more than 340 scheduled cargo-only flights per week and has reconfigured aircraft to maximise cargo capacity for its customers.

“These services will still be provided alongside cargo capacity on passenger flights as passenger traffic increases,” the company explained.
