IAG Cargo today announces that it will offer cargo services on a new Iberia route connecting Quito in Ecuador with its Madrid hub, commencing 26th October 2013. The route will be serviced by Iberia’s largest aircraft the Airbus A340-600. This has been made possible due to the opening of a new facility in Quito capable of facilitating this large aircraft. These flights are in addition to the existing Madrid-Quito-Guayaquil-Madrid flights, which will now operate four times a week, rather than the current seven. Through the IAG Cargo network, customers in Ecuador can connect to 350 destinations worldwide.
