June 17, 2019: Cargolux Airlines has started flights to Santiago de Chile, expanding its opportunities for development in the Latin American market.

Cargolux flies to Santiago de Chile weekly, adding to four other destinations it already serves in the area. The flight is routed from Luxembourg-Viracopos-Santiago de Chile-Quito-Bogota-Aguadilla before returning to the company’s home base in Luxembourg via Amsterdam.

Welcoming the development, Pier Curci, vice-president of the Americas, Cargolux said: “The addition of Santiago to the network further strengthens Cargolux’s position as a flourishing player on the South American market. It is also a testament to the importance of the region in global trade lanes, especially when it comes to perishables such as fruit and flowers.”

Over the years, Santiago has increasingly become a gateway for European products destined for the Latin American market. The market demand is especially solid for sensitive equipment and highly specialised commodities such as machinery, spare parts, pharma, building material, and electronics.

Cargolux has a modern and efficient fleet composed of 14 Boeing 747-8 freighters and 16 Boeing 747-400 freighters. The company is specialized in B747 line and hangar maintenance up to and including C-Checks. It offers a range of specialized maintenance services and holds line maintenance approval for 777 aircraft.
