Cargolux adds Quito to its network
July 05, 2017: Cargolux Airlines has commenced scheduled all-cargo operations to Quito from July 2. With four weekly Cargolux flights, that originate in Luxembourg and operate through Curitiba, Viracopos and Mexico respectively, before arrival in Quito, connect Ecuador’s capital to Amsterdam, Luxembourg and beyond. The direct services from Quito offer Cargolux customers an improved product and logistics set?up with scheduled all-cargo flights.
Cargolux’s direct flights from South and Central America to Amsterdam were introduced in 2016 and serve the perishable and flower markets, offering customers reduced transit times and a faster delivery that better fits their schedules. Growing the presence in the Netherlands also enabled Cargolux to operate more flexibly in the Dutch export markets for products that are difficult to transport by road.
Ecuador was originally introduced into the Cargolux network in late 2000 and immediately enjoyed the strong support of the freight forwarding community. Since then, Cargolux has offered 17 years of uninterrupted air cargo flights from Ecuador and currently operates four weekly flights that mainly support the markets in Amsterdam and the rest of Europa, as well as China and Central Asia. Cargolux is a leading supplier of airfreight capacity to the Ecuadorian flower markets.
