LATAM CargoSANTIAGO de CHILE: January 08, 2019. LATAM Cargo is to begin twice-weekly B767 freighter service between Santiago de Chile and Chicago on February 19 to improve transit times to Asia for perishables exports.

The airline is responding to rising demand from Asia for its ‘Perishable-Salmon’ service for Chilean exports. In 2014 the airline averaged an uplift of 37 tons a week; by the end of 2018 it says the volume had risen to 700 tons.

“We know the Asian market will be a strategic focus in the development of Chilean aquaculture. At LATAM Cargo, we are committed to our customers and we are well aware of the importance of the Asian market for them,” explained LATAM Cargo Commercial director - South America Claudio Torres.

The service includes a return flight via Miami in order to reduce transit times for US exports to Latin America from the Midwest by three days.

“The ongoing expansion of our network is proof of our permanent commitment to our customers. We are optimistic about this new route to Chicago and will continue considering new alternatives to improve their experience,” added LATAM Cargo CEO Andrés Bianchi.

Last year the airline opened 32 routes for air cargo, including five freighter services.
