Colombia-based Tampa Cargo, a subsidiary of AviancaTaca Holding, has taken delivery of the first of four new A330 Freighter aircraft.
The acquisition is part of the cargo airline’s fleet renewal strategy and is expected to allow Tampa to expand its presence in new and existing international markets, including Brazil, Ecuador, Mexico, the U.S. and Uruguay.
“We are confident in the A330-200F’s proven advanced technology, eco-efficiency and range,” AviancaTaca CEO Fabio Villegas, said in a written statement.
AviancaTaca has purchased a total of 190 Airbus aircraft.
The Airbus Foundation, AviancaTaca and Tampa Cargo made use of the delivery to ship teddy bears donated by Airbus employees to underprivileged children in Colombia. Aviation Sans Frontières, an Airbus Foundation partner for the past four years, assisted.
