BAWC keeps Stansted as freighter base

FOLLOWING a tender process, British Airways World Cargo (BAWC) has chosen to continue operating its longhaul freighter programme from London Stansted.

During the evaluation procedure BAWC investigated a number of options, including a possible relocation to Kent International Airport (KIA). Up until only a few days ago sources within BAWC and oweners of KIA – Infratil – had told Air Cargo News that the move was almost finalised.

Jude Winstanley, BAWC’s head of network and freighters, said: “After careful evaluation and taking into account a number of factors including the need to provide the best product for our customers, cost effectiveness, service quality and speed of connection, Stansted remains the most attractive longhaul freighter base for BA World Cargo and our customers.”
