IAG Cargo has significantly increased its European network by adding 26 new stations via its Vueling network. A total of 128 European stations are now available on IAG Cargo’s network; giving customers even more point to point connection options. The new stations will open up export to businesses in Europe’s smaller, provincial airports in addition to bigger European hubs. IAG Cargo’s time definite EuroConnector service will allow businesses to ship goods under 300 kilos in, out of and around Europe, within either 24 or 48 hours; making it perfect for Express and E-commerce shipments, IAG said.
“We have opened new stations across Europe where we see a real commercial need,” said Chris Nielen, regional commercial manager for Europe, at IAG Cargo. “As well as bringing new capacity to markets which need it, our new stations help support a diverse cargo region with a number of specialist solutions, including our time-definite service, EuroConnector. Businesses today need goods shipped faster than ever to meet customer demand. To meet this requirement, we are growing our network beyond our major airports, allowing businesses to fly their goods closer to wherever their final destinations may be.”
The additional 26 stations, which include airports such as Budapest, Düsseldorf, Helsinki, Nice Côte d’Azur, Stavanger and Thessaloniki enable 350 potential routings for customers, ideal for supporting both International and European trading.
