John Cheetham, the Chief Commercial Officer of IAG Cargo, said that the partnership with IATA Net Rates would help the company to broaden distribution opportunities as well as offer an additional platform for its customers „to do business with IAG Cargo“.
“The pandemic has accelerated the appetite for digitalization. Signing up to Iata Net Rates is one of many ways in which we are continuing to offer customers a range of options as the industry embraces digitalization,” explained Cheetham in a statement released on November 5, 2020.
Frederic Leger, the Director of Airport, Passenger, Cargo & Security Products of IATA, outlined that while the whole industry faces the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, the IATA Net Rates supports real-time rates distributions as well as offers „dynamic pricing and booking“.
