Finnair Cargo has signed an agreement to participate in IAG Cargo Partner Plus Program.

The Partner Plus Program is an enhanced version of interline cooperation, which means that through this partnership both IAG Cargo and Finnair are able to deliver enhanced network connectivity to their customers, who will also benefit through confirmed bookings and a higher on-load priority.

ďThis closer cooperation with IAG Cargo will provide our customers better access to many markets beyond our own network. This is an innovative way to grow reach and one that we believe will prove mutually beneficial to IAG Cargo and ourselves," said Juha Jšrvinen, Chief Commercial Officer, Finnair.

Finnair Cargo customers will gain access to markets in South and North America as well as Africa, as the introduction of the IAG network connections offers expanded route availability via London (LHR) and Madrid (MAD). For IAG Cargo the addition of Finnair to the programme will provide additional capacity across the globe, including to Finnair's strategic destinations in North East Asia.

Steve Gunning, CEO of IAG Cargo, said, ďThe benefit for customers is clear and with the addition of Finnair we are now able to deliver enhanced connectivity to key destinations through a partner that matches our values of customer service excellence and operational reliability.Ē

In total, six carriers now form the Partner Plus programme including Qatar Airways, Japan Airlines, the Avianca group and American Airlines.
