IAG Cargo adds Ghana, ups South Africa space


IIAG Cargo is to launch a new route between London Gatwick and Accra from 29 October 29th, adding three services per week to its present daily service between London Heathrow and the Ghanaian capital. It will also resume pre-pandemic levels of services to South Africa, with 31 weekly flights from London and expanded capacity on the Heathrow-Cape Town route by replacing the present Boeing 777-200 with an A350 and Boeing 777-300.

The increased frequency of services to Ghana will help meet the growing demand of perishables out of the country, while the switch to an A350 and Boeing 777-300 widebody aircraft operating between London and Cape Town will more than double the current cargo capacity. 

Chief sales and marketing officer, Camilo Garcia Cervera, said the move would not only improve connections between Africa and Europe but also to the US, where there is growing global demand for fresh produce.
