IAG Cargo targets South African pharma market

2/11/2014 9:37:15 AM

IAG Cargo and British Airways marked the start of commercial flights to Johannesburg on the new A380.

Replacing the B747 model on the route, the A380 offers precision cargo transport opportunities for the South African market. IAG Cargo has specified air conditioning capabilities for the hold, which will be beneficial for temperature-sensitive cargo, such as perishables or pharmaceuticals.

IAG Cargo has optimized its A380 for belly-hold cargo by purchasing two additional ULD positions in the hold. IAG said it will also be the first carrier in the world to receive an A380 with an improved maximum takeoff weight, 12 tonnes heavier than other A380s, allowing it to carry more cargo.
