LATAM Cargo strengthens European cargo links

LATAM Cargo has adjusted its international itinerary to strengthen its airfreight links between Latin America and Europe with the addition of a seventh weekly service utilising one of its B767 freighters .

As part of the new itinerary, LATAM Cargo will use Amsterdam as its main point of entry into Europe. LATAM’s use of the European hub will benefit exporters of perishables from countries in Latin America, including Chile, Peru, Guatemala and Brazil.

LATAM Cargo’s return route will originate in Frankfurt, Germany, and will enable cargo such as medical equipment and supplies, and electronics, to be exported from Frankfurt to Latin America.

Since the start of the outbreak, LATAM Cargo has increased frequenices on the route by 40%.

The move comes in response to a reduction in capacity on the trade lane as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

LATAM Cargo has also strengthened its routes between North America and Latin America with the addition of Los Angeles and Mexico City as destinations for its airfreight flights.

Additionally, to provide a solution for Chilean salmon exporters, LATAM Cargo increased its number of flights from Santiago to Miami, to reach 31 weekly frequencies.

This week, in addition to its existing flight schedule, LATAM Cargo Brazil will transport 240 tonnes of medical cargo on 20 Boeing 767 aircraft. The cargo will be distributed in Recife, Salvador, Fortaleza, Belem, Manaus, Porto Alegre and Brasilia.
