LAN Cargo appoints RTW as GSSA

LAN Cargo has appointed RTW Air Services of Geneva as its general sales and service agents (GSSA) for Switzerland with effect from 1 January, 2009.

RTW managing director, Walter Richner, said: “We are very pleased and proud to have been selected as LAN Cargo’s new GSSA. Our network coverage at all three international airports in Switzerland and our established road feeder programme from Zurich, Basel and Geneva, was a major factor in the selection for Switzerland.

“We anticipate strong demand for the LAN Cargo network to over 30 destinations throughout South America, but particularly for Santiago and Viracopos and also to Peru, Ecuador and Argentina.”

LAN Cargo operates A340-300 and B767-300 passenger aircraft from its European gateways of Frankfurt and Madrid to Santiago de Chile, Guayaquil and Quito (Ecuador) and Lima (Peru) daily. It also operates three times weekly B767-300F freighters from Frankfurt and Amsterdam to Viracopos (Brazil) and Santiago. The latter will be upgraded to new Boeing 777 freighters from May 2009.
