Cargolux flies to Santiago again

By Hpanchal on July 22, 2013

Cargolux Airlines is reinstating its Boeing 747 freighter service to Santiago with a weekly flight beginning Sunday.

Santiago will be added to Cargolux’s regular South American rotation on Sundays, also stopping in Viracopos, Brazil. Santiago has been in Cargolux’s network in the past, and the airline has maintained its cooperation with local GSA Pacific Feeder Services.

Following the re-emerging demand for large capacity freighters to and from Chile, Cargolux decided to add the Chilean capital to its network again.

Apart from general cargo, Cargolux expects to transport mainly pharmaceuticals and machinery to the South American country, while fresh produce, seafood, wine and seeds, as well as outsize cargo, such as mining equipment and generators, will be flown out of Chile.

Economic experts expect consumption in Chile over the next five years to be among the strongest in Latin America. In 2013, Chilean airfreight tonnage is expected to rise by 5.6 percent with an average growth of 10.4 percent over the coming years.
