IAG Cargo will expand its operations in the Middle East, separating its Abu Dhabi and Muscat service into two flights, as well as splitting its Bahrain and Doha services. These will allow users of the airline to benefit from 83 percent additional capacity for the region.

The B787-9 will serve the Abu Dhabi route offering a larger hold and a state-of-the-art air conditioning system, among others. A 777-200 will serve the Bahrain, Doha and Muscat routes, offering customers a cargo payload of up to 20 tonnes per flight.

Our sister publication, Business Review Middle East, originally covered this story. 

Flights to Muscat will operate five times a week, while services to Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Doha will operate on a daily basis.

Camilo Garcia, Head of Sales, at IAG Cargo commented: “With Bahrain making significant efforts to diversify its economy, and Doha benefitting from investments ahead of the 2022 football world cup, this network expansion comes at a time of growing demand into and out of Middle Eastern markets.

“The additional capacity to Bahrain, Doha, Abu Dhabi and Muscat will be welcomed by our customers, offering them greater opportunity and flexibility to connect to over 350 destinations across our network.”
