IAG Cargo begins A380 operations to Johannesburg
IAG Cargo has marked another major milestone in its fleet modernisation programme as British Airways celebrated the start of commercial flights with a brand new Airbus A380 to Johannesburg (South Africa). Replacing the B747 model on the route, the new A380 aircraft offers precision cargo transport opportunities for the South African market.
IAG Cargo has specified air conditioning capabilities for the hold, which will prove beneficial to customers wishing to transport temperature-sensitive cargo, such as perishables or pharmaceuticals. The new on-board services are expected to be welcomed by the South African perishables market.
