First Airbus A321F freighter for Latin America

ACMI, cargo, and charter provider SmartLynx Airlines and Brazilian cargo solutions company Levu Air Cargo (Levu) have joined forces in a new partnership.


Levu will lease an Airbus A321 freighter from SmartLynx to become the first carrier in Latin America to operate this type. The A321F is the only aircraft in its category capable of handling containerised cargo on both the lower and main deck, significantly improving turnover efficiency.


The dry-leased aircraft has arrived in Recife, Brazil to begin the registration process under the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil (Anac) and will be operated by Levu in Brazil on behalf of DHL Express. The freighter previously flew for DHL Aviation in partnership with SmartLynx.


After obtaining its AOC, it will start the process of certification under European (Easa), and US (FAA and DOT) regulations and is expected to enter service on international flights in 2025. (cj)
