Chapman Freeborn charters first LAN Cargo Boeing 777 Freighter
Chapman Freeborn Airchartering has successfully arranged the first ever charter on LAN Cargo's latest addition to their fleet - a new Boeing 777 Freighter only delivered to the Miami-based airline a few days prior to the flight.
The global aircraft charter specialist coordinated the movement of 18 tons of generator equipment from Toronto (YYZ) to Havana (HAV) for the inaugural flight, on behalf of a Canadian project freight forwarding company.
Representatives from Chapman Freeborn were present in Toronto to oversee the operation as cargo was loaded onto the aircraft for the first time ahead of a punctual departure.
The B777F aircraft is the only one of its type in the region, and represents the most modern, efficient, and capable twin-engine freighter in the world.
David Mejia, a cargo charter specialist at Chapman Freeborn, said:
"We are delighted to be the first company to successfully utilise this aircraft. It was a successful charter operation and performed exactly to schedule.
"This B777 Freighter is a valuable addition to the North American and Latin American market, and we expect it will be in high demand with our charter clients."
The customer stated that the level of commitment and fast response provided by Chapman Freeborn was outstanding and made the difference in achieving what was deemed initially as "not achievable".
Chapman Freeborn has 32 offices in 22 countries across five continents and coordinated more than 5,000 cargo and passenger aircraft charters last year.
