1000th IAG Cargo Stansted-HK freighter flight to take-off on Sunday

This Sunday (April 22) will mark the 1000th flight of IAG Cargo’s Hong Kong International Airport to London Stansted Boeing 777 Freighter agreement with Qatar Airways.

The service has been running since 1 May 2014 five times a week connecting to the UK with the world’s busiest cargo hub in terms of volumes.

Back in 2014, IAG Cargo signed a long-term contract for a block space agreement with Qatar Airways for the five flights which are the equivalent to over 400 tonnes.

IAG Cargo said during this time it has successfully moved over 70 million kilos of freight for customers on this lane – the same as over 11,500 African elephants.

In the past four years it has moved a diverse range of commodities, from garments to CCTV equipment, fidget spinners to tablet PCs and headphones to watches.
