IAG Cargo targets textiles and perishables with Maldives service

IAG Cargo has launched a direct service — operating three times per week — from Madrid, Spain, to Male, the capital city of the Maldives.

The carrier said the service will strengthen its presence in South Asia, adding to its Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi routes in India.

Cargo expected to be transported on the Madrid-Barajas route — which is being operated by Iberia A330-200 and A330-300 wide-body aircraft — is textiles and perishables, access to key markets in Europe, Latin America, US and elsewhere.

Fernando Terol Armas, director of Spanish hub and operations at IAG Cargo, commented: “South Asia is an important market for IAG Cargo, and we are very excited to open this new service for our customers in both regions. This route will not only support Maldivian exporters get essential and time-sensitive perishable products to global markets, but also support Sri Lankan exporters using Male as a gateway to Europe and beyond.”

“With our hub in Madrid one of the largest in Southern Europe, this connection opens up opportunities for further import and export growth from Europe and beyond into South Asia.”
