IAG Cargo enhances short-haul European network
DEC 9, 2015: IAG Cargo has increased its European network by adding 26 new stations via its Vueling network. A total of 128 European stations are now available on IAG Cargo’s network giving customers even more point to point connection options. The new stations will open up export to businesses in Europe’s smaller, provincial airports in addition to bigger European hubs. IAG Cargo’s time definite EuroConnector service will allow businesses to ship goods less than 300 kilograms in, out of and around Europe, within either 24 or 48 hours making it perfect for Express and E-commerce shipments. Chris Nielen, regional commercial manager for Europe, at IAG Cargo, commented, “We have opened new stations across Europe where we see a real commercial need. As well as bringing new capacity to markets which need it, our new stations help support a diverse cargo region with a number of specialist solutions, including our time-definite service, EuroConnector. Businesses today need goods shipped faster than ever to meet customer demand. To meet this requirement, we are growing our network beyond our major airports, allowing businesses to fly their goods closer to wherever their final destinations may be.” The additional 26 stations, which include airports such as Budapest, Düsseldorf, Helsinki, Nice Côte d'Azur, Stavanger and Thessaloniki enable 350 potential routings for customers, ideal for supporting both International and European trading. EuroConnector 24 and 48 are both built with reliability in mind, with the added benefit of a 50 percent money back performance guarantee on EuroConnector 24. All routings are via London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Madrid or Barcelona.
