Cargolux has resumed flights to Ecuador after a nearly 39-month hiatus. The Dutch cargo carrier’s twice-weekly flights to Cotopaxi International Airport in Latacunga replace previous freight service to Mariscal Sucre International Airport in Quito.
Cargolux officials said the lack of a curfew at Cotopaxi provides greater flexibility with the carrier’s operations in Ecuador — the majority of which involve flower transportation. The Cotopaxi airport’s cargo facilities feature cool rooms with space for several wide-body freighters. “The excellent roads that connect the flower producers with the airport will make cargo operations on the ground faster, safer and easier for all players involved,” the carrier added.
