Singapore Airlines (SIA) Cargo  has launched its first scheduled freighter service to Sao Paulo in Brazil, as it added South America to its freighter network.

The once-a-week Boeing 747-400 freighter service from Singapore Changi Airport to Sao Paulo’s Viracopos-Campinas Airport was launched yesterday, operating via Hong Kong and Dallas Fort Worth.

The return trip to Singapore operates via Dallas Fort Worth, Brussels and Sharjah.

This new freighter service complements the cargo capacity available on Singapore Airlines’ thrice-weekly passenger flights between Singapore and Sao Paulo’s Guarulhos International Airport, via Barcelona.

“This new freighter service demonstrates our confidence in the growth potential of the Brazilian market,” said Tan Tiow Kor, SIA Cargo’s senior vice president for sales and marketing.

Brazil is one of the world’s fastest growing economies, and its major imports include machinery, electrical and transport equipment, chemicals, cotton, and automotive parts and accessories, he added.

Its principal exports include transport and transmission equipment, heavy machinery, generators, transformers, footwear, and food products.
