60% more cargo-only flights
While passenger traffic continues to decrease, demand for cargo transports remains strong. Virgin Atlantic Cargo is responding to this demand by expanding its capacity on key routes and increasing the airlines’ cargo-only rotations from 21 up to 33 per week this month to keep global supply chains running and transport essential goods across the globe.
The broad cargo destination offering includes daily flights between London and Brussels, providing same day European connections for customers.
The increase in scheduled operations comes as Virgin Atlantic Cargo celebrates a historic and record-breaking year in 2020: The cargo business operated 4,000 cargo only flights and also launched ten new routes. These included Beijing, Boston, Brussels, Chicago, Dublin, Milan, Islamabad, Lahore, San Juan and Xiamen. (ah)
