IAG to launch Louisiana route

[ October 21, 2016   //   ]

IAG Cargo will launch a new four times a week route from London to New Orleans on 26 March March next year, making the only carrier to fly direct from Heathrow to the Louisiana gateway. The new service will be operated by a BA 787-8 aircraft offering bellyhold capacity up to 15 tonnes and a state-of-the-art air conditioning system.

Commercial director, David Shepherd, commented: “The launch of our new Critical product in particular will mean emergency shipments, which we anticipate will include machinery parts and oil and gas components from the local area, now benefit from an absolute guarantee to fly.”
