Taking off this week, DB Schenker offers additional charter capacities across the Atlantic. The new route starts from the Netherlands and reaches Brazil after two stopovers in the USA. In South America, direct connections to Argentina and Chile are available. The weekly freight charter flight provides 50 tons of capacity and expands DB Schenker’s growing intercontinental flight network.
Thorsten Meincke, Global Board Member for Air & Ocean Freight at DB Schenker: “To keep economies running, companies require stable supply chains. By expanding our flight network to South America, we provide a new source of reliable capacity to the market. We are happy to say that the demand is already high.”
Every Sunday night, the flight leaves Amsterdam (AMS) and stops in New York City (JFK) and Miami (MIA) on Monday before reaching Viracopos (VCP) near São Paulo on the same day. On Tuesdays, a direct connection can be made to Buenos Aires (EZP), and Santiago de Chile (SCL) can be reached on Wednesdays. An airline partner will be operating the new transatlantic route with Boeing 767 freighter jets. The charter flight’s stopover in Miami allows access to numerous further destinations in the operating carrier’s portfolio.
The first bookings include a diverse range of goods, including many automotive parts. Temperature-controlled cargo and dangerous goods can also be transported upon request. Within Europe, the flights seamlessly connect to DB Schenker’s land transportation network.
