Avianca Cargo (formerly Tampa Cargo – Transportes Aereos Mercantiles PanAmericanos S.A.) is a cargo airline based at José María Córdova International Airport in Medellín, Colombia.
It is an all-cargo airline transporting general cargo throughout the Americas.
Avianca Cargo was established in March 11, 1973 by Luís H. Coulson along with Captain Juan Fernando Mesa, Captain Orlando Botero Escobar and Captain Anibal Obando Echeverri.
It commenced operations with a Douglas DC-6A piston-engine aircraft formed part of the initial fleet that was acquired. These were retired in the early 1980s.
Avianca acquired a 100% stake in Tampa Cargo in 2008.
On February 1, 2010 Tampa Cargo is named the administrator of the Avianca and Taca commercial aircraft capacity.
On September 27, 2011, Avianca ordered four Airbus A330-200F aircraft to replace the existing Tampa Cargo fleet, with deliveries to commence in December 2012. This made Tampa Cargo the first A330F operator in Latin America.
