Amazon Air launches double-daily freighter service to Miami Airport
Oct 12, 2018: Amazon Air has launched twice daily freighter service through Miami International Airport (MIA).
The new cargo service, connecting the America’s busiest port to other airports across the US, is being operated by Atlas Air Worldwide with Boeing 767-300F aircraft.
The service includes an onsite facility at MIA to sort packages bound for their next destination.
“We are excited to launch the Miami gateway to support our growing air operation,” said Sarah Rhoads, director of Amazon Air.
She adds, “Amazon has enjoyed being a part of the Miami-Dade community and are thrilled to continue our relationship.”
Amazon already operates four warehouses in Miami-Dade County, all within 12 miles of MIA – the largest of which is a new 885,000-square-foot fulfillment center at Miami-Opa locka Executive Airport just completed this year.
Amazon Air’s launch comes nine months after Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) officials hosted its first e-Commerce strategy workshop with more than 30 local air cargo industry stakeholders, with the goal of establishing Miami-Dade County as one of the world’s leading e-commerce hubs. Market research firm eMarketer forecasts Latin America to be a strong e-commerce growth region during that span, with a projected doubling of annual sales from $47.4 billion in 2015 to $84.8 billion in 2019.
“Amazon Air’s two daily flights will add a significant boost to our domestic cargo traffic, which is already up 17 percent through August,” said Lester Sola, director, Miami-Dade Aviation.
