Amaszonas Uruguay will transport cargo

In the framework of the Covid-19 pandemic, Amaszonas Uruguay achieved cargo certification.


Amaszonas Uruguay, after an exhaustive certification process, was authorized to transport cargo in the passenger cabin and cargo holds. The company developed a manual with specific procedures to carry cargo on board where it complies with international air transport standards approved by the Uruguay’s National Directorate of Civil Aviation and Aeronautical Infrastructure (Dinacia).

It will be able to carry about 7,500 kg of cargo between the passenger cabin and cargo hold to any part of South America, among which the transport of medicines and medical supplies will be prioritized in the framework of the Covid-19 pandemic.

It should be noted that the head of the company met with the authorities of Carrasco Airport Single Cargo Terminal and is in talks with Uruguayan exporters.

The Embraer 190 that the company has is the most modern aircraft on the market that has HEPA filters, which eliminate 99.99% of viruses and bacteria; in the cabin the oxygen is completely renewed every three minutes.

In passenger flights, both the airline and the Amaszonas Group carry out the fumigation of all their aircraft before, during and at the end of each flight through deep disinfection, in addition to the cabins and seats at the end of the day, following international standards for direct contact. On the other hand, onboard personnel who have contact with passengers wear 3M N95 masks and nitrile gloves during each operation and the catering service was suspended. Tickets are purchased online from its website, in airport self-services or in its commercial office.

Through a strict security protocol, the company has available the information that indicates that, both at the airport and on the plane, the use of face masks and gloves is mandatory. In pre-boarding, the temperature of all passengers will be measured before entering the plane and a social distance of one and a half meters will be required when boarding.
