 LAN Cargo, a leading Latin American Cargo airline, is joining Boeing's Component Services Program (CSP) which will provide LAN Cargo with worldwide access to spare parts for the carrier's 777 Freighter fleet.

LAN Cargo becomes the 12th airline in the 777 Component Services Program, which is offered jointly by Boeing and Air France Industries / KLM Engineering & Maintenance.

CSP allows airlines to outsource the cost and logistical issues associated with keeping important parts on hand, while significantly reducing inventory. The inventory required to support an airplane type can cost millions of dollars.

"The 777 Freighter provides a competitive edge for LAN Cargo's operation and the 777 Component Services Program will further extend that advantage," said Dale Wilkinson, vice president of Material Services for Commercial Aviation Services, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Additionally, LAN will stabilize its long-term 777F maintenance budget planning."

The program provides 24-hour access to a dedicated inventory pool of selected high-value, dispatch-critical components, such as avionics, actuators and precision mechanical assemblies. LAN Cargo will have ready access to components so the airline can remove a faulty unit and replace it with a serviceable one quickly and easily, helping to maintain departure schedules.

LAN Cargo received its first 777 Freighter in April 2009 and currently operates two of the airplanes.
