Sept 13, 2016: All cargo carrier Cargolux will introduce a new direct flight from Luxembourg to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, on October 2.
The Luxembourg based carrier has already established four successful weekly service from Aguadilla to Europe that are strongly supported by shippers and forwarders in the South and Central American perishables and flower industry.
The carrier utilises 747-8F freighter that is ideally suited for perishable and cool chain shipments with its four independently adjustable climate zones, superior range and speed.
In addition, Cargolux already operates four indirect weekly flights from Luxembourg to Aguadilla.
Building on growing demand for faster services on the sectors to Puerto Rico, the new, direct south-bound flight complements the established services perfectly.
“Our long-standing experience in the cool chain transport field, coupled with our dedicated, customer-oriented mentality, makes the Cargolux service to Aguadilla a superior offering for our partners in the pharma and perishables industry,” notes Niek van der Weide, EVP Sales & Marketing, Cargolux.
“Only Cargolux serves this sector directly, fast and reliably. Our cool chain experts regularly assess the specialized and often unique requirements of our customers and offer solid and practical solutions. This dedication is well received and has made our CV Fresh and CV Pharma products a sound success.”
Cargolux was the world’s first GDP-certified cargo airline and utilises Luxair’s modern pharma and healthcare center at Luxembourg airport, itself a GDP-certified facility.
“Gaining an early GDP certification has underlined our constant quest for the highest quality standards,” adds van der Weide.
The flight, CV 8387, leaves Luxembourg every Sunday at 22.15h and arrives in San Juan on Mondays at 1.30h (all times local).
