LATAM Airlines saves US$3.2 million in fuel


LATAM Airlines Group has purchased 3,517 ultra-light Kevlar containers from Nordisk Aviation Products to replace all of those used in the company's cargo operations and improve fuel efficiency to make an annual cost saving of US$3.2 million.
The Santiago-based airlines, the result of a merger in 2012 of two airlines LAN Airlines and TAM Airlines, has acquired the lighter containers at a price of $9 million. The ultra-light containers are high strength, offer thermal stability under extreme temperatures, and weigh 30 per cent less than standard aluminium containers.
"We are very happy with this new acquisition as it represents a major investment being made by our companies - more than $9 million - that will yield savings in fuel and maintenance as well as reducing annual CO2 emissions by 10 million tonnes annually," said Fernando Poitevin, vice president of operations for LAN CARGO.
