In Latin America in September, Lan’s cargo traffic also increased. Cargo traffic was up by 20.4% thanks to the recovery in imports to Latin America driven by Brazil and the increase in operations to Europe with the B777 freighter fleet.

In June 2010 LAN Cargo launched domestic cargo operations in Brazil to Recife and Fortaleza through its affiliate ABSA. In-line with higher demand, capacity grew 20.5%. As a result, the cargo load factor dropped 0.1 point to 69.7%.
