VIRGIN Atlantic's first daily Airbus A330-300 touched down at Israel's Ben Gurion International Airport with a full load of 20 tonnes of cargo in the airline's latest expansion of its network, reports London's Air Cargo News.

'We are delighted to welcome Tel Aviv to our network,' said Virgin Atlantic Cargo managing director Dominic Kennedy. 'It is an important cargo route and we have been extremely encouraged by the level of bookings between London and Tel Aviv and the US connections we now offer over our London hub.'



Virgin Atlantic's cargo capacity out of Israel is being marketed by its GSSA partner, WTA Aviation, while Swissport is providing cargo handling in Tel Aviv.



Virgin Atlantic Cargo is confident of gaining a healthy share of the market, which produces high volumes of pharmaceutical, e-commerce, express and valuable shipments as well as high-tech products, fresh produce and other general cargo.



This month will see further expansion of its long-haul cargo network when it recommences daily London-Mumbai services and, in early 2020, the airline will begin its first operation in South America with a new daily London-Sao Paulo route.
