LATAM Cargo Launches Direct Route from Netherlands to Brazil for Pharma Market

Published: Thursday, October 19, 2023

LATAM Cargo has launched a new route between Brazil and the Netherlands that will target the pharma market and provide a faster connection.

The freighter operator said the new service would operate twice per week between Amsterdam and Curitiba utilising one of its Boeing 767 freighter aircraft.

The service is aimed at “strengthening connectivity between Europe and South America while reducing transportation time through a more direct alternative and providing enhanced capacity for clients”.

Up until now, forwarders and shippers have had to use services with an intermediate stop.

“Operating with two weekly frequencies on Tuesdays and Saturdays, this route efficiently links Europe with Curitiba, primarily transporting pharmaceutical products and general cargo,” the airline said.

Gudny Genskowsky, vice president of network and alliances at LATAM Cargo, said: “At LATAM Cargo, we are constantly reviewing our cargo itinerary, always seeking new opportunities to benefit our customers.

“In this context, the opening of this route is part of an initiative that will enable us to provide a more direct and efficient service to Curitiba from Europe.”
