LATAM Cargo in partnership with VTC LOG transports 50 tons of important hospital goods to combat Covid-19 in Roraima, Brazil, on May 29 and 30. In addition, respirators will also be sent to Rondônia.
Transportation is carried out in three flights using Boeing 767 aircraft (transport and passenger aircraft adapted for cargo transportation) and Boeing 777 aircraft (also adjusted for cargo). They left São Paulo / Guarulhos airport to Manaus, where the cargo would continue its journey to be sent in both countries.
Of the total transported, 40 respirators will be sent to the state of Rondônia. The remaining cargo, 50 respirators, and around 50 tons of protective equipment and medicines, will be sent to Roraima.
“We are very committed to sending important goods to Brazilian countries to combat COVID-19. We have even redesigned our network taking into account the needs of this cargo,” said Diogo Elias, director of LATAM Cargo Brazil.
This initiative is one of the many actions taken by LATAM Cargo in Brazil to supply all regions of the country. Since the pandemic began, more than 100 flights have been carried out to transport about 600 tons of different goods to fight disease. These include: drugs, tests, alcohol-based gels, masks, gloves, thermometers, respirators and food donations.
The company maintains all cargo operations in the Brazilian domestic market and is taking steps to increase cargo capacity over the coming months. These actions include using larger aircraft for travel to strategic destinations in the country and transporting cargo in customized passenger aircraft. This form of operation allows cargo to be placed under the seat, in the hand luggage compartment or even in the chair.
