Lufthansa Cargo is to expand its route network in South America next year. Pending regulatory approval, the cargo airline will begin serving the Brazilian metropolis of Manaus for the first time, on 21 January 2011.

The return flights from Manaus on Tuesdays and Saturdays will stop in Quito and Bogot, with a technical stop in Curacao.
