Restoring the London – Tokyo service, which was paused due to coronavirus, will be welcomed by IAG Cargo’s customers on both sides of the Pacific. Tokyo is particularly significant for the export of pharmaceutical goods, which can be moved seamlessly using IAG Cargo’s Constant Climate service. This state-of-the-art cold chain product is specially designed to process time and temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals.

Last year the route played an important role in supporting the British Museum to transport over 200 pieces from Japan for a special manga exhibition, with the help of IAG Cargo’s Secure product.  
 
Alec Rayner, Area Commercial Manager for Japan & Korea, IAG Cargo, said: “Japan is an important part of our network and we are pleased to be re-opening London Heathrow-Tokyo Haneda for our customers.

"The route is vital for them to stay connected with their trading partners worldwide, allowing the movement of Japanese pharmaceuticals, automotive and manufacturing goods to reach hundreds of destinations.”
