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.
