Latam Cargo launches flower flights to Los Angeles

Latam Airlines Group has opened a new all-cargo route connecting Los Angeles and Houston to South America to support exporters of flowers and industrial products. 

Latam Cargo, which operates 17 Boeing 767-300 freighters and plans to add four more by 2024, announced it is offering biweekly frequencies on the following route: Quito, Ecuador; Los Angeles; Houston; Manaus, Brazil; and Sao Paulo. The number of flights will increase to four times per week in the second half of the year after the carrier receives more new cargo planes.

The new service is focused on diversifying export destinations for Ecuador’s flower business beyond Miami and Amsterdam.

The addition of Houston to Latam Cargo’s network comes in response to the demand for service to Brazil from shippers of industrial and electronic components, machinery, engines, auto parts, and other goods.
