Finnair Cargo Adds London to Network

Finnair Cargo has expanded its network through an innovative freighter sharing deal with IAG Cargo.

The route will be operated by an A300-600 cargo freighter, which will fly between London and Helsinki.

The freighter, which has a 43 ton capacity, will fly twice a week and provides Finnair with the ability to easily route cargo through London. This deal benefits customers by significantly improving connectivity between Asia Pacific, Europe and the Americas.

Antti Kuusenmki, VP, Head of Finnair Cargo, said, We are happy to announce the opening of our third hub in London, which is continuing the home market expansion we successfully started by establishing the Brussels hub three years ago. This partnership with IAG Cargo offers our customers considerably improved connections between Asia and the UK, and adds tens of new great connections between our Nordic home market, North America and Asia.

Steve Gunning, CEO of IAG Cargo, added, With Finnairs excellent reach into Asia and our strength in the Americas, this deal will open up new markets for our customers while supporting the responsible management of capacity on our network.

London becomes Finnair's third cargo hub in Europe in addition to Helsinki and Brussels.
