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.
