Avianca Cargo to connect Colombia to Texas
Beginning 2 October 2019, Avianca Cargo will offer a twice weekly A330-200F service between Bogota (Colombia) and Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) in Texas (USA), supplying the market with additional capacity on a modern plane that allows the simultaneous transport of different types of cargo due to its independent temperature-controlled decks.
Avianca Cargo selected this new destination because of DFW’s economic growth as well as its central location within the USA. It is also in line with the strategy of strengthening the Bogota hub, consolidating all cargo from South America with final destinations in Europe and Asia.
General managing director Kurt Schosinsky: "We will handle mainly perishable cargo such as salmon and red fruits from Chile, flowers from Colombia, asparagus and mangoes from Peru and flowers and fruits from Ecuador." (ah)
