The LATAM Cargo Group announced new adjustments to its itinerary to benefit its customers and mitigate the impact that the COVID-19 has generated in the passenger operation. On this occasion, the company announced the incorporation of two destinations to its network of cargo flights to meet the needs of its customers.
Both the city of Los Angeles (USA) and Mexico City (Mexico) were added to the LATAM Cargo network because they are relevant markets for its clients. They will form part of the Santiago (Chile) – Lima (Peru) – Los Angeles (USA) – Mexico City (Mexico) – Lima – Santiago route. With two weekly frequencies, it will support the transport of perishables to the United States and will promote the supply of other products from USA and Mexico to South America. Specifically, LATAM Cargo will offer mango exporters in Peru a greater transportation capacity to the West Coast of the United States.
“The current environment is stressing supply chains across the globe. We want to prove our clients that we remain committed to their success. This new freighter operation replaces the passenger capacity that was critical to key clients. As strategic partners, we moved swiftly to offer them a new alternative and we intend to continue doing so in the markets that require it”, commented Andrés Bianchi, CEO of the LATAM Cargo Group.
LATAM Cargo Group has worked to satisfy its clients’ demand in their most relevant markets, protecting capacity for the Latin American export and import markets. On one hand, its freighter capacity between Santiago (Chile) and Miami (USA) increased fivefold. On the other, capacity between Europe and South America was incremented 20%, adding up to a total of 6 weekly frequencies that will allow the transportation of perishable products to Europe. In addition, frequencies between Miami and South America were increased by almost 15%, totaling 26 frequencies each week.
