12 / 06 / 2013
AIRLINE grouping IAG Cargo has transported a large shipment of high-value, specialist security equipment across its extensive global network for use at the FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013.
The equipment was shipped to Rio de Janeiro from IAG Cargo’s hubs at London Heathrow and Madrid–Barajas and carried on both British Airways and Iberia aircraft, utilising the strength of the carrier’s combined network.
The cargo was transported using IAG Cargo’s Perform Unitised product, specifically designed for the unique requirements of lose cargo shipments, says David Shepherd, head of commercial at IAG Cargo.
IAG Cargo is benefitting from a 40 per cent expansion in capacity between London and Rio de Janeiro due to an increase in commercial flights operated by IAG carriers.
