Copa Airlines’ Senior Director of Cargo Jaime Alvarez will join the panel discussion “Latin American carriers and the future of narrowbodies” at Cargo Facts LATAM on Tuesday, May 17, at 1:45 p.m. (GMT -5).
The inaugural Cargo Facts LATAM event will take place in Panama City on May 15-17, gathering industry leaders in the region to offer their perspectives and analyses on market trends and provide an outlook on the Latin American air cargo market.
Alvarez started as a manager for Copa and helped establish its cargo network from the U.S. to secondary markets throughout the Americas. Alvarez manages Copa Cargo’s door-to-door courier service and helped establish the cargo terminal at Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport (PTY).
Alvarez is a member of the cargo council at the International Air Transport Association.
Panama-based Copa Airlines became the first operator of the 737-800BCF in Latin America after committing to two conversion slots with Boeing and beginning commercial operations in early 2022. The airline sourced feedstock from its own passenger fleet and ferried unit 33709 to the GAMECO facility in Guangzhou (CAN) in July 2021.
