The 13-year-old aircraft, registration CC-CXE, was delivered on 17 March and flew for the first time yesterday (Wednesday 30 March) from Miami to Bogota and back. It will initially serve markets in Colombia, Brazil and Central America.
CC-CXE is the second of 10 767-300BCFs LATAM Cargo has on order with two more expected this year, bringing the 767-300 fleet to 15. By 2023, LATAM Cargo plans to have 21 freighters in its fleet.
Kamal Hadad, Alliances and Network Director at LATAM Cargo says: “Fulfilling the growth plan despite the uncertain scenario generated by the pandemic in the industry reflects the commitment of LATAM and its cargo subsidiaries to the region’s importers and exporters of providing them with more and better options for taking their products to their relevant markets.”
Converting CC-CXE into a freighter took 4 ½ months and was done by SASCO MRO in Singapore.
