LATAM Cargo Chile, formerly LAN Cargo S.A., is a cargo airline based in Santiago, Chile and the freight subsidiary of the LATAM Airlines Group. It is operating cargo flights within South America, to Europe and North America from its hubs at Miami International Airport and Santiago International Airport.[1]

It is a sister company of LATAM Cargo Brasil and LATAM Cargo Colombia.

History[edit]

The airline is based on the original cargo divisions of LAN Chile, Ladeco, and Fast Air. It also works closely with the other cargo airlines in the group, ABSA - Aerolinhas Brasileiras, Florida West International Airways and MasAir.[1] LAN Cargo has been rebranded to LATAM Cargo Chile as part of the merger of its parent LAN Chile with TAM Airlines to form LATAM Airlines during 2016.
