Avianca Cargo announced the close of its Mother’s Day season with the transportation of more than 400 million flower stems, representing close to 18,000 tonnes of cargo, on some 300 flights from Colombia and Ecuador to the United States.

More than 14,000 tonnes were transported from Colombia, once again positioning the cargo airline as the national leader in the transportation of flowers to the United States, says an official release from Avianca. “The company is also expanding its fleet with new A330 freighters, enabling it to continue to position itself as an important strategic partner for the flower industry in the region.”

For this Mother’s Day season, and for the second time this year, Avianca Cargo doubled its regular capacity for the transportation of flowers, highlighting the export of roses and carnations from Bogota, pompons, hydrangeas and chrysanthemums from Medellin, and roses, carnations, and gypsophila from Quito, the release added.
