IAG Cargo beats record uplift on flight from Mumbai

posted on 25th September 2020 by Eddie Saunders

IAG Cargo, the cargo division of the International Airline Group (IAG) uplifted 50,026 kgs of cargo on a single flight on its long haul route from Mumbai to London operated by a B777-300ER aircraft in September – a record for IAG Cargo from India.

The record cargo comprised of a mix of products including perishables (fruits and vegetables), pharma and courier. However, it was the large amount of high dense engineering goods, destined for Europe & North America, that made the difference on weight. Capacity on the aircraft was optimised by carefully planning the weight and volume on the ULDs.
