IAG Cargo has resumed its direct service from London Heathrow to Seoul-Incheon in South Korea after having suspended the route when the pandemic hit.
The carrier is operating flights on the route three times per week utilising its Boeing 787 aircraft.
IAG Cargo said the route is significant for the export of pharma products around the world — and highlighted that they can be moved using its Constant Climate service.
Alec Rayner, area commercial manager for Japan and Korea at IAG Cargo, commented: “South Korea is an important part of our network and we are delighted to be re-opening London Heathrow—Seoul for our customers.
“Last year the UK-Korea Free Trade Agreement was signed allowing businesses between South Korea and United Kingdom to guarantee a continued free flow of goods, supporting the movement of South Korean pharmaceutical, automotive and e-commerce goods to reach hundreds of destinations and British goods to reach South Korea”.
