LATAM Cargo has launched a twice weekly B767-300F direct cargo flight out of Miami, linking the Caribbean with Latin America.

The new service will arrive from Miami at the Dominican Republic’s Las Americas José Francisco Peña Gómez (AILA-JFPG) International Airport near Santo Domingo before continuing to Colombia and/or Ecuador.

Fabien Gourdon, sales director of Aerodom, a company that operates six state airports in the Dominican Republic, said: “The arrival of LATAM Cargo to our country complements and strengthens our air cargo connectivity.

“The airports operated by Aerodom, a member of the VINCI Airports network, offer quick and safe connections to distant markets and global supply chains,”

Commented Andrés Varela, LATAM Cargo’s Sales Director – North America and Asia: “Opening this new route is a true milestone for LATAM Cargo, since this is our first cargo service to and from the Caribbean.

“We are committed to fulfilling the needs of our customers by providing innovative solutions that offer more and better route options to reach their relevant markets.”

Aerodom said that that AILA-JFPG airport is the only one offering express services in the country, allowing companies to reduce inventory costs and quick access to the global marketplace by completing all Customs formalities in less than three hours.

Aerodom highlighted the significant increase in cargo capacity these twice-weekly frequencies represent in consolidating the efforts to transform the country into the “hub of the Caribbean”, taking advantage of its strategic geographical location.
