IAG Cargo transported 125 tons of aid to Ukraine
In recent weeks, IAG Cargo, the cargo division of International Airlines Group, has partnered with top charities, including the Red Cross, Project Hope and SEPLA Ayuda, as well as network operators such as Iberia, British Airways and Vueling to transport help for Ukraine. To date, the company has donated capacity to carry 125 tons of aid, including blankets, kitchen equipment and medical equipment. IAG Cargo will continue to support relief efforts in the region.
So far, 10 flights have carried aid, with IAG Cargo working with sister airlines to provide high-capacity aircraft, including the A330-200 and A350, to maximize cargo capacity.
The latest shipment has led IAG Cargo to partner with US-based Project HOPE and Priority Worldwide to deliver eight tonnes of medical equipment from Boston to Ukraine via London-Heathrow, using a British Airways A380. IAG Cargo is in talks with a number of global charities that want to transport aid to Ukraine.
