BA World Cargo Launches Daily Passenger Service to Dubai

British Airways World Cargo has launched its third daily passenger service to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, as part of its winter schedule.

According to the airline, there is one change to the long-haul freighter program with the London Stansted-Hong Kong rotation, which will see Munich replace Cologne from October 29, 2008. The current short-haul freighter summer schedule will remain in place for the winter.

Johnny Rubio, area commercial manager of British Airways World Cargo for Middle East, Central Asia, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, said: "Making extra capacity available to our customers in Dubai will be of tremendous benefit to the region.

"Through our efficient hub at London-Heathrow, customers will be able to access destinations across Europe via our extensive short-haul freighter network, consisting of 48 weekly wide-body services across 12 European destinations."
