With Latin American economies showing solid growth, UPS has significantly expanded the capacity of its express air network throughout the region. The freight company has increased its cargo capacity by more than 50 percent on 19 weekly flights into Central and South America, replacing a Boeing 757 narrow-body aircraft with a new, larger B-767 wide-body freighter. To increase its reach into the Americas, Asia, and other parts of the world, UPS continues to invest in new B-767s with 20 currently on order.
The flights to Latin America originate from UPS's Americas hub in Miami and fly into Quito, Ecuador; Guayaquil, Ecuador; Bogota, Colombia; Panama City, Panama; Guatemala City, Guatemala; and Managua, Nicaragua. The reliability of these scheduled services provides an alternative for importers and exporters with tight supply chain and cold chain requirements, according to UPS.
