IAG Cargo goes back to Sri Lanka

[ April 4, 2013   //   ]

IAG Cargo resumes flights to Sri Lanka says it will offer a full range of cargo services when it reinstates passenger flights from Colombo, Sri Lanka in mid-April after a 15-year absence. The new route, which includes a stopover in the Maldives, will be operated three times per week using a Boeing 777 aircraft.

Sri Lanka is an important manufacturing and growing region for a wide range of goods including high-end retail, fruits and vegetables and rubber.

IAG Cargo’s area commercial manager for South Asia, Pravin Singh, commented: “We have always had a strong bond with the Sri Lankan market and our announcement to return to the country has been met with excitement and warmth that is symbolic of the country. Our flights will provide the much needed direct lift into the UK with quick access to our vast network via our bespoke product portfolio.”
