IAG Cargo has marked another major milestone in its fleet modernisation programme as British Airways celebrated the start of commercial flights to Johannesburg on the brand new Airbus A380.

IAG Cargo and British Airways marked the event yesterday, taking the A380 on its first flight over South Africa.

Replacing the B747 model on the route, the new A380 aircraft offers precision cargo transport opportunities for the South African market.  IAG Cargo has specified air conditioning capabilities for the hold, which will prove beneficial to customers wishing to transport temperature-sensitive cargo, such as perishables or pharmaceuticals. The new on-board services are expected to be a welcome feature to the South African perishables market.
