ATSA Becomes First South American Dash 8-400 Aircraft Operator to Join De Havilland Canada’s Cargo Solutions Program
De Havilland Aircraft of Canada (De Havilland Canada) announced that Aero Transporte SA (ATSA) has signed a firm agreement to convert the Dash 8-400 large cargo door cargo aircraft (Dash 8-400 F-LCD). The agreement makes ATSA the first South American Dash 8-400 aircraft operator to join De Havilland Canada’s Cargo Solutions program, and the ATSA Dash 8-400 F-LCD aircraft will be the first aircraft to operate on the continent. ATSA currently operates two Dash 8-400 aircraft from its base in Peru to support the mining sector.
“As an experienced operator of the Dash 8-400 aircraft, we know firsthand its excellent performance to support our expanding cargo operations in Peru’s mining sector. Our country’s complex geography, which includes arid coastal plains, the Andes Mountains and the Amazon rainforest, makes the Dash 8-400 an ideal choice for this type of operation,” said Carlos Cueva, President of ATSA.
