LATAM Cargo debuts in Santo Domingo with recurrent cargo flights

  • LATAM Cargo opened a new direct cargo route Miami – Santo Domingo – Colombia/Ecuador, thus strengthening its cargo capacity with two weekly flights.

Santo Domingo, D.R.– AERODOM and VINCI Airports welcomed LATAM Cargo’s inaugural flight on its recently opened cargo route Miami – Santo Domingo – Colombia / Ecuador.

The new service will operate twice a week at Las Americas José Francisco Peña Gómez (AILA-JFPG) International Airport, arriving in Santo Domingo from Miami and continuing to Colombia and/or Ecuador, thus linking the Caribbean with Latin America. 

“The arrival of LATAM Cargo to our country complements and strengthens our air cargo connectivity. The airports operated by AERODOM, a member of the VINCI Airports network –the world’s largest private operator–, offer quick and safe connections to distant markets and global supply chains,” said Fabien Gourdon, sales director of AERODOM.

LATAM Cargo is serving its new route with the modern Boeing 767-300F aircraft which has 50 tons of freight capacity. 

“Opening this new route is a true milestone for LATAM Cargo, since this is our first cargo service to and from the Caribbean. We are committed to fulfilling the needs of our customers by providing innovative solutions that offer more and better route options to reach their relevant markets,” commented Andrés Varela, LATAM Cargo’s Sales Director – North America and Asia.

The AILA-JFPG airport is the leader in cargo services and the only one offering express services, allowing companies to reduce inventory costs and quick access to the global marketplace by completing all Customs formalities in less than three hours.

LATAM Cargo, a unit of the LATAM Airlines Group, is one of the largest air freight airlines in the region. LATAM is Latin America’s leading airline group. It operates in five domestic markets across the region: Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, and provides international service within Latin America and towards Europe, Oceania, the United States and the Caribbean. LATAM Cargo and its subsidiaries operate a total of 16 freighters.

By welcoming LATAM Cargo, AERODOM has highlighted the significant increase in cargo capacity these twice-weekly frequencies represent in consolidating the efforts to transform the country into the Hub of the Caribbean, taking advantage of its strategic geographical location.
