IAG Cargo has commenced its new Madrid to Shanghai service, touching down in Shanghai for the first time today, making it one of the only carriers to directly connect the two cities. IAG Cargo has also announced that the winter 2016 schedule will offer 10 flights per week from London Heathrow to Shanghai; an increase of three flights per week compared to the 2015 winter schedule.  These will be serviced by Boeing 777 aircraft, with the next generation B787-9 Dreamliner set to be introduced in winter 2017. With the new route from Madrid and the additional weekly services out of London, businesses trading in the region will benefit from a 65% increase in capacity per week as of winter 2016, compared to winter 2015.
