We expect LATAM Cargo’s remarkable international expertise to provide valuable impulses for our association work, thereby hopefully benefiting the entire aviation location Germany as well as commerce and economy.”
LATAM Cargo senior manager – sales Central Europe, Jorge Carretero adds: “The lively trade between Latin America and Germany as well as the entire EU is an important pillar for us. For this reason, the BARIG membership offers us an ideal platform to contribute to the development of major topics regarding the air traffic location Germany.
