IAG Cargo, the cargo division of International Airlines Group (IAG), announced a new route between Madrid, Spain and Doha, Qatar, expanding its reach in the Middle East and enhancing its proposition in the Asia Pacific region.

The new, daily direct service between Madrid and Doha will be operated by an Iberia A330, commencing December 11, says an official release. "With Madrid being a key international hub, customers from Asia Pacific will be able to connect their goods into the wider network through Madrid, which serves 17 destinations in Latin America. Likewise, the service enables greater access for customers in Europe, Latin America and North America, particularly in the food sector where perishables are largely exported into the Middle East. The business also offers direct connections between Madrid and eight key cities in North America, alongside a daily wide-body bridge connection to London."
