Feb 17, 2016: Cargolux Airlines International SA returns to Rio de Janeiro with a full freighter service starting March 4, 2016. The return to Rio was driven by growing demand for pre-Olympic Games freight capacity between March and August.
In addition, Cargolux expects to carry car parts and spares, chemicals, electrical goods, consolidated freight and household goods on its services to Rio de Janeiro.
The Olympic Summer Games 2016 will take place from August 5 to August 21 and shippers have already expressed interest in using the expertise of Cargolux for their valuable equipment.
The flight CV7645 will leave Luxembourg and arrive in Rio de Janeiro. The flight continues to Viracopos before returning to Europe as CV7656.
Along with Viracopos/São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Cargolux also serves the Brazilian gateways Manaus, Petrolina and Curitiba.
