In addition to general cargo, Cargolux expects to carry consumer goods, automotive cargo and spare parts on the services to Argentina. Return flights are expected to carry mainly perishables, automotive parts and live animals such as horses.
The additional rotation to South America is introduced due to increasing exports and demand for air cargo capacity out of Ecuador and Colombia as well as a requirement for additional capacity from Brazil in combination with the service to Argentina.
IATA reported a 3.9 per cent year-on-year growth of air freight volumes for September 2013 on the back of the strong growth observed in Latin American economies in recent months. The region saw the strongest trade increase this year, supporting the continued expansion in air freight demand.
