IAG Cargo, the cargo division of International Airlines Group (IAG) has announced the return of its direct service from the United Kingdom to South Korea, a route that had been suspended owing to the pandemic.
South Korea is a high-growth market for U.K. exports, and is one of the largest exporters in the world, with its top exports being electronics and automotive parts. The London Heathrow – Seoul-Incheon route is also significant for the export of pharmaceutical goods, which can be moved seamlessly using IAG Cargo’s Constant Climate service. The London Heathrow – Seoul-Incheon service will run year-round, three-times per week on 787s and marks another important development in IAG Cargo’s work to support key trade routes for its customers.
The return of this route is the latest in a series of restarts for IAG Cargo, such as its London Heathrow service into Japan which recommenced last month.
