Cargolux adds Santiago de Chile to its network

Cargolux re-designed and re-instated the South American routing to Santiago de Chile. The weekly connection serving Santiago will be part of a South American routing that includes four other destinations in the area, meaning that the itinerary will be Luxembourg-Viracopos-Santiago de Chile-Quito-Bogota-Aguadilla before returning to Cargolux’s home base in Luxembourg via Amsterdam.

Over the years, Santiago has increasingly become a gateway for European products destined for the Latin American market, especially for sensitive equipment and commodities such as machinery, spare parts, pharma, building material, and electronics.

Pier Curci, Cargolux’s Vice-President of the Americas, said: “The addition of Santiago to the network strengthens Cargolux’s position as a player on the South American market. It also shows the importance of the region in global trade lanes, especially when it comes to perishables such as fruit and flowers.” Returning to Santiago de Chile contributes to enhancing Cargolux’s service offering in the region.
