This past December, LAN Cargo set a new record for the transportation of mangoes from Peru to Europe, shipping 525 tons of the tropical fruit using two 767 freighters.
The mangoes were flown from Lima to São Paulo, where operations teams at Guarulhos ensure that the cold chain and the fruit’s optimal quality are maintained before being shipped to Europe.
LAN is responsible for transporting approximately 35 percent of Peruvian mangoes to Europe. Peruvian mango exports have increased 28 percent from the 2012-2013 to the 2013-2014 season, reaching 10,159 tons.
For 2014-2015 producers expect to maintain last season’s figures, and LAN anticipates transporting around 3,000 tons.
