Iberia Converts first A330s into Freighter to Adapt to Market

The first Airbus A330 airliner that Iberia has converted into freighter had recently arrived in Los Angeles from Madrid.

In the early months of the Covid’19 pandemic, Iberia’s flight operations were almost exclusively confined to repatriation flights and flights carrying emergency medical supplies. This experience prepared Iberia to adapt to the new market situation and seize this opportunity.

María Jesús López Solás, sales chief, Iberia, said “We are expecting an increase in air freight demand in coming months and this in an opportunity we should try to seize.  Under today’s circumstances we must adapt better than ever to market demands, and this operation will help diversify our income streams while keeping our staff active.”

IAG Cargo, the cargo division of International Airlines Group (IAG), will service these flights. At the start of the pandemic IAG Cargo were quick to develop tailored solutions for its customers cargo needs, including cargo-only flying on passenger aircraft and establishing a new charter team. With a wide network, IAG Cargo offers its services on more than 500 aircraft, to more than 350 destinations.
