LATAM Cargo will end 2019 with increased cargo capacity by taking delivery of its third and final Boeing 767-300BCF.
The converted freighter will operate 14 weekly flights to Colombia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Paraguay, Brazil and the USA, and possibly Europe in the future.
Increased capacity will strengthen LATAM Cargo’s position in Latin America, especially on routes from Colombia and Ecuador to the US.
It has almost tripled capacity on Bogota – Miami services and by 35% between Quito and Miami.
The aircraft operated by LATAM Cargo Colombia is number N542LA and made its maiden flight on Saturday 7 December on the Miami – Bogota – Miami.
Andres Bianchi, CEO of LATAM Cargo Group says: “Adding this last Boeing 767BCF is a major milestone for the LATAM Cargo Group, as we now have a fleet that is 100% compatible with our strategy and the reality of the markets we currently serve. Moreover, we operate the aircraft type that best responds to the market sizes and products we carry. This will enable us to solidify our position in key markets, provide our customers with more and better options and boost our profitability.”
LATAM Cargo received its first B767-300BCF in December 2018, with the second one following in July 2019.
