The increased frequencies offer our customers more options to connect their cargo to the rest of the world via our network which today covers six continents, and we recently introduced China back to our regular schedule – an important market for many exporters in Latin America.’

These routes regularly facilitate the movement of perishables and popular foods grown locally including flowers, papayas, mangos, and stone fruits as well as pharmaceuticals and automotive parts.
