All cargo airline TACA Peru connects Miami with five South American cities
August 24, 2017: Miami International Airport (MIA) welcomed its latest international cargo airline Trans American Airlines, S.A. (TACA Peru). The airline, part of Avianca Holdings SA, will operate four weekly scheduled freighter flights with Airbus A330-200F between MIA and five South American cities with service to Lima, Santiago, Bogota, Medellin and Buenos Aires.
MIA has seen growth by new and existing passenger and cargo airlines since January, resulting in freight tonnage at up by 4.8 percent so far this year.
“TACA Peru’s Miami launch will add to the significant growth trend we are experiencing in both international and domestic cargo traffic. With more all-cargo airlines expected to begin service in 2017, we look forward to shattering our record from last year and strengthening our position as America’s busiest international freight airport,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T Gonzalez.
TACA Peru is the second airline to begin all-cargo service at MIA this year, and the fifth since January 2016. In February, Qatar Airways launched two weekly cargo flights to Doha, with stops in Luxembourg, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Quito, and Liege. Mexican freighter airline AeroUnion began two weekly flights to Mexico City and Mérida last December. American freighter airline Northern Air Cargo launched four weekly charter cargo flights to San Juan, Saint Martin, Santo Domingo and Port-au-Prince last November. The US carrier 21 Air began six weekly frequencies between MIA and Bogotá, and two weekly flights on a triangular route between MIA, Panama City and Guatemala City, also last November. Canadian airline KF Cargo launched six weekly charter freight flights to Bogota, Caracas and Lima last April.
