Leading cargo airline Cargolux has announced it will expand its network to include 747 freighter flights to Argentina’s capital Buenos Aires on a new, additional South America rotation.

The Luxembourg-based airline, one of the largest scheduled all-cargo airlines in Europe with a global network, announced the expansion with 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.

The International Air Transport Association reported a 3.9 percent 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.

Flight CV7643 leaves Luxembourg every Wednesday and is routed to Buenos Aires’ Aeropuerto Internacional Ministro Pistarini de Ezeiza via Viracopos, Brazil.

CV7654, the return flight from Argentina touches down in Latacunga, Bogota, Aguadilla, Puerto Rico and Maastricht before returning to Luxembourg on Thursdays.

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.

Take a look at our agenda for Procurement & Supply Chain Live, where innovation meets implementation, coming to you live from London

From September 28th-30th, network with C-level executives, gain insight from industry pioneers and walk away with actionable insights that accelerate your career. By the end of the week, we promise you’ll have the skills to solve the world’s most pressing supply chain and procurement challenges. 

The three-day show is an essential deep dive into the industry, with influential speakers sharing insights and strategies from their organisations, group roundtable discussions, and fireside chats. Whether you attend virtually or in person, you’ll strategise how to cope with global disruption, learn from industry leaders, and walk away with tips, tactics, and tangible connections. 

 

How to Attend

 

In a COVID-disrupted era, we know that the majority of people would rather avoid travelling for events─why take the risk, right? In response to the continued disruption, BizClik Media Group has decided that Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will offer the best of both worlds through hybrid accessibility. 

That means you and your peers can attend the event in person or virtually ─ with no disadvantages for people who choose not to make the trip to the Tobacco Dock venue. 

 

In-Person

 

Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will be held at the Tobacco Dock in London, an industry-leading venue that is renowned for delivering world-class events. For attendees’ peace of mind, the venue is working to the government-endorsed AEV All Secure Framework, alongside mia’s AIM Secure and ‘Good to Go’ accreditation, they will ensure that we achieve a COVID-secure environment to facilitate all of your networking needs. 

 

Virtually

 

Our physical venue is both historic and stunning, but it has no bearing on the information that you and your peers can gain from the event. You can still absorb it all, interact with other attendees, and enjoy the conference experience on your alternative, virtual platform. 

The platform will feature live feeds from all of the stages, as well as virtual networking areas. So, if you want to avoid travel, it’s not a problem! You can still get involved and enjoy the entire experience from the comfort of your own home.
