The Barcelona to Buenos Aires service will start with a Christmas flights programme and and from January 12 will launch a three-weekly frequency; Barcelona to Santiago de Chile will commence on December 22, twice a week.

The services will look to cater for medical supplies, electronics and automotive parts, in addition to high demand perishables such as Chilean cherries and salmon, and Argentinian beef and fresh fruit.  

John Cheetham, chief commercial officer at IAG Cargo, said: We are delighted to offer our customers these regular services once again. Our flights between these regions serve important trade routes and with IAG Cargo’s wider connections these services will provide further opportunities for our customers at both ends.”
