IAG Cargo, the freight business of British Airways and Iberia, today announces a number of increased flights between London Heathrow and the Middle East and Africa. As part of the newly unveiled summer schedule for British Airways, from early 2014 businesses in the region will benefit from additional frequencies from Tel Aviv in Israel, Accra in Ghana and Entebbe in Uganda.

Tony Snell, Regional Commercial Manager for the Middle East and Africa at IAG Cargo commented. “The Middle East and Africa is a key market for IAG Cargo, especially when it comes to the movement of perishables, such as fresh fruit and vegetables. With additional frequencies to and from these three strategic countries we will be well placed to take advantage of growing trade in the region, offering customers the specialist products they need for large volumes of perishables.”
