LATAM Group has taken delivery of a Boeing 767 BCF – the third of four it will receive this year. The company also announced the incorporation of another Boeing 767F in September 2022.
LATAM’s cargo subsidiaries will now finish the year with 16 freighters, with six 767 BCFs to be added during 2023.
The newly-received aircraft will be primarily used to transport flowers from Colombia and Ecuador, and will further strengthen and expand the LATAM network’s destinations in the US and Europe.
“The arrival of five freighter 767s this year represents significant progress for LATAM’s cargo subsidiaries, since it allows the group to give more alternatives to clients utilising the optimal aircraft for our markets,” said LATAM Cargo’s CEO Andres Bianchi.
“In fact, we can already see concrete results: during the Mother’s Day season, LATAM’s cargo subsidiaries transported 16.400 tons of flowers. This is a record for LATAM and consolidated the LATAM group and its cargo subsidiaries as the main flower operator in the region. This is a true reflection of our commitment to connect South America with the world.”
