BA World Cargo last month launched a new weekly Boeing 747 freighter service to Munich, which will be routed Stansted – Munich– Delhi – Hong Kong and has beendeveloped as a response to the increasingIndian-bound trade from SouthernGermany. It will also be the fi rst timethat the Far East will be served by bothMunich and Frankfurt hubs.
Keith McDonald, regional commercial manager Central, South & East Europe, BA World Cargo said:“The summer schedule has given usthe chance to review our network andidentify key business opportunitiesthat will best serve our customers’needs.
“At present we get a signifi cant amount of business from the Munich area which was previously trucked to Frankfurt. This new routing will minimise transit times for our Munich- based customers and provide them with an effi cient service to the Far East.”
