LATAM expands European services with new Lisbon route

LATAM Cargo kicked off its new Guarulhos to Lisbon route carrying a full load of six tonnes of cargo on behalf of freight forwarder Panalpina.
The five-times-a-week service took off for the first time on September 3 utilising a Boeing 767 passenger aircraft. The airline said the flights are part of its strategy to strengthen and expand its connection network between Latin America and Europe. 
“Brazil is a highly demanded and growing market for European exports as well as for passengers. Being able to offer capacity out of Europe from our 7 and soon 8 hubs including our Lisbon operation starting as from 3rd of September will ensure to all our customers a variety of options in order to guaranty speed, consistency and reliability within our network and product portfolio,” said Guido Henke, LATAM Cargo commercial director Europe.
Markus Muecke, Panalpina global head of air freight procurement and product management, added: "This new, direct LATAM Cargo route will  increase the connectivity between Europe and South America and improve speed and reliability for our customers on both sides of the Atlantic.
"For Panalpina, Brazil is one of the strongest growing air freight markets, so this new route is a great opportunity for us to expand our business even more.”
