Likewise, the service enables greater access for customers in Europe, Latin America and North America particularly in the food sector where perishables are largely exported into the Middle East. The business also offers direct connections between Madrid and eight key cities in North America, alongside a daily wide-body bridge connection to London.

This new route means that we’re able to increase our customers’ trans-shipment route options, by offering an additional gateway linking Asia Pacific destinations to our extensive European and Latin American network. Moreover, it presents customers in Latin America and North America an extra gateway to connect with their shippers in the Middle East and Asia Pacific, leveraging our established partnerships in the region.

With this new route, we look forward to facilitating new trade lanes, which will bring a host of benefits to our customers.”

The launch of this route represents a strategic move that strengthens IAG Cargo’s presence in the Middle East. Doha is just one of IAG Cargo’s destination offerings in the Middle East, extending from its London hub which includes Riyadh, Kuwait, Dubai, and Bahrain.
