IAG launches European link

PRESS RELEASE

November 04, 2014: IAG Cargo has today announced the launch of a new service: EuroConnector – a simple, cost effective and time-definite option for shipping freight into, around and out of Europe. This innovative service will further help the carrier optimise capacity on its short-haul network. The launch has been timed to coincide with peak business demand in the run up to Christmas.

Businesses that currently rely on truck networks when connecting globally to or from Europe can now take advantage of the carrier's short-haul network through a simply-priced tariff. Connecting to the 114 European destinations on IAG Cargo's network, EuroConnector delivers cargo within either 24 or 48 hours. The service, which utilises capacity on narrow-body aircraft, is available for shipments of less than 300kg and can be booked at www.iagcargo.com.

Both versions of the service are built with reliability in mind, with the added benefit of a performance guarantee on EuroConnector 24. Booking cut-off times range from two to six hours depending on whether the cargo is loose or intact. All routings are via London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Madrid or Barcelona and are serviced by the more than 6,000 weekly flights IAG Cargo supports on its European network, bringing customers unprecedented flexibility and choice.

Steve Gunning, CEO IAG Cargo, commented: "EuroConnector offers global businesses a choice of time-definite, cost-effective solutions for shipping goods into, around and out of Europe. Innovative services such as EuroConnector will prove hugely important to our continued long-term success; improving capacity utilisation and helping us grow market share."
