MIAMI: August 22, 2019. LATAM Cargo is to make a significant increase in its Colombian and Peruvian operations, with the carrier hoping the expansion in Colombia will consolidate it as one of the main players in the region’s largest export market.

LATAM Cargo BLATAM Cargo Colombia plans to add 12 frequencies between Bogota and Miami and, as a consequence, the company is expected to double its operations between Colombia and the Unites States.

Import operations into Colombia will also expand as it increases freighter operations between Miami and Bogota to eight flights per week. The expansion in Colombia will take place gradually between September and December.

In September LATAM Cargo will initiate freighter service from Miami to Lima with two flights per week. And in December LATAM Airlines Peru will upgrade its passenger service from Madrid to Lima from Boeing 767 to Boeing 787-9 aircraft, tripling its cargo capacity.

The growth of freighter operations will be possible thanks to the addition of two Boeing 767-300BCF, bringing LATAM Cargo Group’s fleet to 11 aircraft. While the first one joined LATAM Cargo Colombia's fleet in July of this year, the second one is expected to start operations in December 2019.

“The expansion into Colombia and Peru is fully aligned with LATAM Cargo Group’s long-term network strategy. The new services to Bogota and Lima, and the expansion out of Colombia, will enable us to consolidate our network as the most comprehensive into South America,” said Andres Bianchi, LATAM Cargo’s CEO.
