Our cargo team have had quite a year. With very few customers taking to the skies right now they’re making the most of things by increasing the amount of cargo we fly. In fact, they’ve left no stone unturned in search of new opportunities. That includes flying to 11 new destinations in the last 12 months alone.
We’ve ventured into the arctic circle for the first time and started cargo flights to Harstard/Narvik airport at Evenes in Norway. The twice-weekly flights on our Boeing 787-9 aircraft will offer over 100 tonnes of cargo capacity each week, that’s 50 tonnes per flight, primarily serving the Norwegian seafood and fish industry flying fresh salmon.
This new service will offer fast, efficient connections via London Heathrow onto our extensive global network, which means the delicious seafood will reach its destination up to 72 hours faster than current options which go through Oslo.
