IAG to upgrade Middle East offering

[ May 12, 2016   //   ]

IAG Cargo will separate its current Abu Dhabi and Muscat service into two flights and will split its Bahrain and Doha service from this winter.  The four separate services will boost capacity to the Middle East by 83%, it says.

The next generation B787-9 will serve the Abu Dhabi offering a larger hold and a state-of-the-art air conditioning system while a 777-200 will serve Bahrain, Doha and Muscat routes, a payload of up to 20 tonnes per flight.

Flights to Muscat will operate five times a week and daily to Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Doha.
