LATAM – June cargo traffic growth
In its preliminary statistics for June, LATAM – the airline group made up of LAN Airlines and TAM Linhas Aéreas – has reported that cargo traffic for LAN grew 1.3 percent year-on-year. The carrier’s freight capacity increased by 0.3 percent due to greater available bellyhold space.
As a result, the cargo load factor rose by 0.7 percentage points to 69.5 percent for the month.
LATAM said: “Cargo traffic growth was driven by strong demand for commodities from South America, partially offset by weaker imports into Latin America.”
