IAG Cargo starts new freighter service from Madrid to Basel
IAG Cargo started a new freighter service between Madrid and Basel to meet the demands of Switzerland's fast growing pharmaceutical sector.
Customers will have access to 29,000 kilogrammes of lift per flight, expanding the airline's existing short-haul freighter network by 6%. Scheduled services will operate on Sundays with a return flight on the same day.
The new freighter service will support Switzerland's booming pharmaceutical sector, which makes up more than a third of the country's export volume.
During the two-month trial of the service, 74% of goods shipped out of Switzerland by the cargo were carried on its Constant Climate product for temperature-sensitive drugs.
Said IAG Cargo commercial director David Shepherd: "Our latest freighter service underlines our commitment to giving customers the capacity and routes they need."
