Finnair (Helsinki) has issued this statement:
Finnair Cargo, a fully owned subsidiary of Finnair, has expanded its network after signing an innovative freighter sharing deal with IAG Cargo.
The route will be operated by an Airbus A300-600 cargo freighter, which will fly between London and Helsinki. London becomes Finnair’s third cargo hub in Europe in addition to Helsinki and Brussels.
The creation of the new cargo bridge, which will connect the two carrier’s networks, is an important strategic move for Finnair Cargo. It will enable the opening of tens of new destinations in North America in addition to its current routes.
The freighter, which has a 43 ton capacity, will fly twice a week and provides Finnair with the ability to easily route cargo through London.
