LATAM Cargo adds new routes between the US and Latin America

Comment on this article

LATAM Cargo today announced it will begin service on two new routes for cargo originating in the US, increasing capacity from North America to Central and South America.

The new Miami-Panama-Bogota and Miami-California routes began operations on February 11. Twice weekly flights will be operated by B767-300F aircraft on a permanent basis.

The new route will accommodate demand for general cargo, electronics, pharma and dangerous goods.

“We are leaders in transportation to, from, and within Latin America, mostly thanks to our extensive and robust network. These new launches will give our customers more options to choose from, strengthen connectivity and facilitate trade,” said Gabriel Oliva, LATAM Cargo’s Commercial SVP for North America, Europe and Asia. “In addition to these new routes, in recent years, we have opened ten destinations that have enhanced the connection between the North and the South of the American continent. We have also boosted connectivity between Latin America and the other regions where we operate.”

The Miami-Panama-Bogota route will consolidate the role of Panama as an importing country, and increase its exporting potential by transporting cargo originating in the country to Bogota, Colombia, where it can connect with the many alternatives served by LATAM Cargo’s narrow body fleet, or to Santiago (Chile), Lima (Peru) and Guarulhos (Brazil) on wide-body aircraft.

LATAM Cargo’s new Miami-California route, meanwhile, will offer the possibility to carry shipments to Bogota, Colombia.

These new routes were announced together with a third cargo service between Miami and Lima, Peru. Cargo service on that route began in late 2019 with a twice weekly frequency.

“At LATAM cargo we are constantly evaluating new destinations, strengthening our network and enhancing the care options and services in our product portfolio to satisfy our customers' requirements with the highest quality standards,” added Oliva.
