Cargo revamp for British Airways and Iberia

Following the merger of British Airways and Iberia, the airlines’ cargo operations will be run as a single business unit reporting to International Airlines Group (IAG), the holding company created by the merger. 

The combined business will be one of the 10 largest air cargo carriers worldwide and will be led by Steve Gunning as Managing Director and Ignacio Díez Barturen as Deputy Managing Director.  They were previously Managing Directors of BA World Cargo and Iberia Cargo respectively.

Both airlines will keep their brands and their employees will continue to work for their current airline but staff and customers will be watchful to see how the integration works out with one eye on the future as far as passenger sales go.  There will be a small cargo management team within IAG. www.baworldcargo.com www.iberia.com
