STARTING October 2, Avianca Cargo will offer a freighter service twice a week from Bogota to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to meet the demand for perishables.

The carrier selected DFW because of its destination because of its economic growth and central location within the United States, with easy overland distribution throughout the country, reported Mumbai's Stat Trade Times.



It is also in line with the strategy of strengthening the Bogota hub, consolidating all cargo from South America with final destination to Europe and Asia, said the carrier in its official release.



The new route will be serviced by an A330-200F aircraft, offering the market additional capacity on this modern plane that allows the simultaneous transport of different types of cargo due to its independent temperature-controlled decks.



Said Avianca Cargo chief Kurt Schosinsky: 'We see great potential in this new route where we will handle mainly perishable cargo such as salmon and red fruits from Chile, flowers from Colombia, asparagus and mangoes from Peru and flowers and fruits from Ecuador. All these goods are in high demand in international markets.'



Said DFW development chief John Ackerman: 'This new service represents a milestone for DFW as the first scheduled South American freighter that will further the airport's strategy for developing trade lanes between South America and Asia.'
