LATAM Cargo will operate an additional aircraft and, as a result, LATAM Cargo and its related carriers will end 2022 with a fleet of 16 B767 freighters.

“This aircraft will allow us to continue strengthening our value proposition through a broader and deeper network. The B767-300F’s blend of size and competitiveness enables us to offer our customers more and better routing options”, commented LATAM Cargo’s CEO, Andrés Bianchi.

The additional freighter capacity will increase connectivity across transatlantic routes and benefit the transportation of general cargo, fresh flowers and fruits, among other products.

The announcement comes after LATAM Airlines Group released a significant plan that seeks to reinforce cargo connectivity between Europe and the Americas, thus offering its customers more and better solutions.

The plan will be implemented gradually during the second half of this year, with more frequencies, a more diversified transatlantic network between Europe and strategic U.S. cities, and greater connectivity to Central and South America via New York and Miami.

LATAM Group’s cargo operators will practically double their capacity between Europe and the Americas, increasing their weekly frequencies by 85% from 7 to 13, that is, a 160% growth compared to pre-pandemic levels (2019).
