Oct 26, 2016: Miami International Airport (MIA) will have a new U.S. freighter airline Northern Air Cargo (NAC), operating from it from November 1, 2016, which will include: two weekly roundtrip freighter flights on a triangular route between MIA, San Juan and Saint Martin; one weekly flight that will operate between MIA and Santo Domingo; and one weekly flight that will serve a triangular route between MIA, Port-au-Prince and Santo Domingo. Northern Air Cargo will utilize Boeing 737-300F aircraft for the new service.
“We look forward to welcoming Northern Air Cargo to MIA, and we wish them success on their expansion to the Latin American and Caribbean region,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T. González. “MIA’s vast route network across the globe, in addition to our evolving cargo logistics infrastructure, continues to attract freighter airlines from around the world.”
Northern Air Cargo is the third all-cargo airline to start service at MIA this year. In April, Canadian airline KF Cargo launched charter freight service between MIA and multiple points in South America. In November, U.S. carrier 21 Air is scheduled to begin eight weekly roundtrip freighter flights to Latin America, with six weekly frequencies between MIA and Bogotá, and two weekly flights on a triangular route between MIA, Panama City and Guatemala City. Northern Air Cargo and 21 Air will join MIA’s current total of 107 passenger and cargo-only airlines – the most of any U.S. airport.
