Cargolux returns to Santiago de Chile
Cargolux Airlines returned to Santiago de Chile on a re-designed South American routing on 14 June. The weekly Santiago connection forms part of a South American routing that includes four other destinations in the area.
The flight rotation is Luxembourg-Viracopos-Santiago de Chile-Quito-Bogota-Aguadilla-Amsterdam and then the company’s home base in Luxembourg.
Pier Curci, Cargolux’s VP Americas: “The addition of Santiago to the network further strengthens Cargolux’s position as a player in the South American market. It is also a testament to the importance of the region, 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. Demand is especially solid for sensitive equipment and highly specialized commodities such as machinery, spare parts, pharma, building material, and electronics. (ah)
