A Message From Our CEO: It’s a New Day for PrimeAir as LAS Cargo Joins our GSSA Portfolio

We don’t often use this space to share breaking news, but this is a big day for PrimeAir. Perhaps the lesser known of Prime Group’s four business units for many of our everyday customers, PrimeAir is an extremely well-known name in the Latin American market. In fact, since 2001 the company has been serving as a general sales and service agent (GSSA) throughout the region to some of the most prominent players in the global air cargo industry.

Today I announce that we are officially expanding our presence in the North American market – starting with a Lineas Aereas Sudamericanas (LAS Cargo). Founded in Bogota, Colombia, where they have been in operation for more than 50 years, LAS Cargo likewise is on a steady ascent to growth – and has selected PrimeAir to represent them in the U.S.  through our Miami office.

A First for PrimeAir

This is a first for PrimeAir. We have a long history of success in acting as an intermediary between airlines and cargo customers through our Ecuador and Colombia offices, assisting with the marketing, sales, and handling of airline operations within the region – for carriers such as Atlas Air and Emirates SkyCargo.

As our first U.S.-based PrimeAir operation to be managed on American soil, and we could not be prouder and more excited to welcome LAS into our portfolio. Let’s take a closer look at this new customer and the services they provide between North America and all points south into Latin America.

The LAS Cargo Story

LAS Cargo operates a fleet comprised of Boeing 737 and 727 cargo aircraft based at Bogota’s El Dorado International Airport (BOG). Offering full service and ad hoc cargo charters for over five decades, LAS Cargo has long prided itself by being highly attentive and flexible to client needs.

Shippers and freight forwarders seeking personalized service and competitive rates for cargo originating in the U.S.  will now be able to take advantage of LAS Cargo’s daily flights from Bogota and beyond. LAS is specialized in transporting everything from perishables and dangerous goods to livestock.
