Avianca Cargo is reinforcing its strategy in the air cargo industry and contributing to the development of the Brazilian market through an exciting expansion. The company is inaugurating a new destination, Vitória, which joins its existing operational cities like São Paulo, Campinas, Manaus, and Curitiba.
Starting from August 8th, there will be a weekly cargo frequency connecting Miami to Vitória every Tuesday. This route, Miami (MIA) – Campinas (VCP) – Vitória (VIX), enhances Avianca Cargo’s presence in South America. In this context, the airline will increase its capacity for importing technological products and high-value goods, primarily, as well as enhancing the export of perishable goods, all in a more efficient and sustainable manner, thanks to the A330F fleet operated by the company.
“Brazil is one of our most significant markets for import and export. At Avianca Cargo, we are in constant search of new opportunities to offer our clients. This is why, with the inauguration of our fifth destination in this country, we will continue to provide them with more alternatives, consistently and with the highest quality standards,” affirmed Diogo Elias, Vice President of Corporate Development at Avianca Cargo.
With its Miami station certified by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) under the CEIV Lithium Batteries seal and its commitment to delivering the highest quality standards in the distinctive handling and transportation of technology and lithium batteries, the cargo airline ensures that its onboard cargo arrives at its destination with the same excellent care as always.
Rhenus Logistics, a global logistics provider, is among the first to embark on this route operated by Avianca Cargo, importing high-tech goods for one of its largest clients to Vitória.
Robert Villanueva, Air Gateway Supervisor of Rhenus Logistics Americas affirmed, “through a strong collaborative effort with Avianca Cargo, we are proud to shake the market in Vitória. Transporting cargo swiftly and efficiently from Miami to VIX enables us to deliver our services to one of our biggest high-tech clients in the region. Our commitment to this specific route reflects our dedication to Brazil, one of our largest markets in support of our Miami Gateway, guaranteeing allocated space with Avianca Cargo to further strengthen and increase the air cargo landscape in the area.”
Regarding exports from the South American country, Luiz A. Beraldo, Director of Perishable Air Product Brazil at CEVA Logistics stated, “in the launch of this route, alongside CEVA Logistics, Avianca Cargo will export perishable products such as fruits and fish from Vitória to the United States and Europe. This new operation signifies a substantial reduction in transit time as there will no longer be a need for a land connection to Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo.”
From his perspective, Ricardo Gesse, CEO of Zurich Airport Brazil expressed, “the arrival of Avianca Cargo into Vitória Airport further underscores the immense potential of Espírito Santo within the logistics sector. This new operation brings us great satisfaction and undoubtedly aids the city’s advancement, aligning with our company’s mission.”
Building upon the company’s strengthening strategy, Avianca Cargo will persist in expanding its presence in Brazil, with forthcoming announcements of additional available destinations to and from the South American nation.
