IAG Cargo, the leading aviation cargo business, and LEVEL, a long-haul, low-cost airline in the IAG Group, have announced a return to the skies for the Barcelona – New York route for passengers and cargo.

The route provides an important trade and passenger connection between the Americas and Southern Europe.

There will be a weekly Barcelona – New York rotation utilising LEVEL’s A330-200 aircraft. BCN – JFK commences on the 11thSeptember and JFK – BCN on the 13th September.

John Cheetham, Chief Commercial Officer at IAG Cargo commented:  

 “We are delighted that LEVEL has been able to resume operations and get passengers back in the skies. Increased passenger flights mean more options for IAG Cargo customers. We look forward to supplying these important markets with much needed air cargo capacity.”

Lucía Adrover, Chief Commercial Officer commented:  

“We at LEVEL are pleased to announce that we are restarting our operations for passengers and cargo from Barcelona, contributing to IAG Cargo’s extensive freight traffic network made possible thanks to the group’s synergies. This is good news not only for the sector but also for the long-haul connectivity of the city of Barcelona.”

To welcome back LEVEL’s operation out of Barcelona, IAG Cargo is offering customers who are members of their FORWARD.REWARDS loyalty programme the opportunity to earn double rewards points for cargo booked on the route between 28thAugust and 28th September.

Since the start of the pandemic, IAG Cargo has established a network of over 340 scheduled cargo-only flights per week and has reconfigured aircraft to maximised cargo capacity for its customers. These services will still be provided alongside cargo capacity on passenger flights as passenger traffic increases.
